Advice for supervisors if an employee reports symptoms

Estimated reading time: 1 min
  • Employees with symptoms should not come to work until they have talked with a CSU Public Health official.
  • Employees should report their symptoms to the university via the COVID Reporter.
  • It is possible for individuals to experience symptoms of COVID-19 and not have COVID-19. Symptoms may be due to other health conditions, such as an infection or the common flu or cold.
  • The COVID Reporter does not diagnose an individual with COVID-19 and is merely a tool for the university.
  • Please maintain employee’s medical privacy by not sharing beyond a need-to-know basis that this employee has reported symptoms, and do not assume that an employee who report symptoms through the symptom checker has COVID-19.
  • Employees are not obligated to inform their supervisors if they have COVID, if they are experiencing symptoms, or if they have been vaccinated.
  • Custodial crews are routinely cleaning and disinfecting surfaces.
  • Employees within individual units should be frequently disinfecting shared spaces and personal work spaces.
