Obligation to Record & Report:

We understand that Employers are facing unexpected challenges in relation to COVID-19.   While the “common cold/flu” are not expected to be recorded by Employers, OSHA expects that employers identify  COVID-19 infection among employees.  Employees must self-monitor by monitoring their signs and symptoms:  Dry cough, elevating fever, and shortness of breath.  Employers can take employee’s temperatures at this juncture.  Employers should report any positive cases, hospitalizations or deaths, to OSHA and an Applicable State Agency within a reasonable time frame.
