Each situation is unique and we can help you craft a warning that fits your individual factual scenario. But here are a few questions to consider first.
- Prior to learning about the infected person’s presence at your premises, what were you doing to limit the spread of the virus?
- What parts of the premises were visited by the infected person and how long was he or she at the premises (do you know what he or she touched, if anything)?
- How soon after the infected person visited the premises did you discover they were positive for COVID-19?
- What steps did you take upon learning of this information and when did you take these steps?
With this information, you can draft a warning that addresses these and other salient points. Here is a hypothetical example.
- You have been implementing the CDC and local guidance for businesses as it evolves.
