Additional information is available to help employees and managers assess where at-risk employees should and should not work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Health Incident Command Team has signed off on a list of wards and areas of the health service which have the potential for a higher risk for those who are in one of the at-risk categories released by the Department of Health and Human Services last week.
While the area overall is considered high risk, there will be parts of the ward which will remain low risk, depending on the work role.
Details of the process for all at-risk employees and frequently asked questions are available on the COVID-19 employee website.
All employees should assess themselves against the at-risk criteria. If they fall into one of the categories of people who would potentially become seriously ill should they contract COVID-19, they need to complete the screening checklist and start a process to have their workplace and type assessed.
Please take the time to consider whether this affects you – it is imperative we carefully manage the health and safety of all our employees.
Managers, please take an active role in having your at-risk employees work through the screening checklist and send them through to COVID19employeeenquiries@monashhealth.org.
