Workplace COVID-19 Case and Cluster Guidance for Employers

Employers play an important role in reducing the potential transmission of COVID-19 in a workplace, particularly necessary when employees self-identify as having a positive COVID-19 lab test result, before the workplace may be notified by public health. The Province of Manitoba provides guidelines to outline the steps employers can take after learning about a COVID-19 positive case or cluster in their workplace, and related to:

  • collection and sharing of basic information related to the case and contacts in the workplace and related to public health
  • required cleaning and disinfection procedures
  • workplace risk assessments
  • return to work procedures
  • recommendations and requirements for reporting to the provincial Chief Occupational Medical Officer (COMO)
