What do I do if I suspect a client has been exposed to coronavirus (COVID-19) or is infected?
If you encounter a client who is showing signs of coronavirus COVID-19 or has reported being in close contact with someone who has, always follow guidance from your employer. The CDC recommends individuals should receive interventions they would normally receive as a standard of care. Those who are suspected or confirmed to have the virus should be asked to wear a surgical mask as soon as they are identified and be evaluated in a private room with the door closed. For additional workplace guidance, visit the CDC's Workplace, School and Home Guidance and Framework for Mitigation.
