COVID-19 Outbreak Management Protocol


Exposed Group - All members at a work location, working area, instructional space or a common area at work, where a COVID-19 case was present at any time during the high-risk exposure period. A common area includes bathrooms, walkways, hallways, aisles, break or eating areas, and waiting areas. A place where persons momentarily pass through while everyone is wearing face coverings, without congregating, is not a work location, working area, or a common area at work or school.

If the COVID-19 case was part of a distinct group of people who were not present at the workplace or instructional space at the same time as other people, for instance a work crew or shift that does not overlap with another work crew or shift, only members within that distinct group are part of the exposed group. If the COVID-19 case visited a work location, working area, instructional space or a common area at work for less than 15 minutes during the high-risk exposure period, and all persons were wearing face coverings at the time the COVID-19 case was present, other people at the work location, working area, or common area are not part of the exposed group.

Outbreak - Three or more COVID-19 cases in an "exposed group" within a 14-day period.

Major Outbreak - 20 or more COVID-19 cases in an "exposed group" within a 30-day period.

During an Outbreak

  • Immediately make testing available to all members in the exposed group and exclude positive cases and exposures from work or school; repeat the testing one week later; and
  • Continue to make tests available to members at least weekly until the exposed area no longer qualifies as an outbreak.
    Perform a review of potentially relevant COVID-19 policies, procedures, and controls and implement changes as needed to prevent further spread of COVID-19.
  • Implement ventilation changes to mechanical ventilation systems including increasing filtration efficiency to at least MERV-13, or the highest efficiency compatible with the ventilation system. Evaluate whether HEPA air filtration units are needed.
  • All members in the exposed group, regardless of vaccination status, must wear face coverings when indoors, or when outdoors and less than six feet from another person, unless an exception applies.

During a Major Outbreak

  • Make testing available to all members in the exposed group at least twice weekly and exclude positive cases and exposures until there are no new cases detected for a 14-day period;
  • Offer respirators to all members, regardless of vaccination status, to use on a voluntary basis;
  • Separate members in the exposed group from other persons by at least six feet where feasible;
  • Determine the need for a respiratory protection program (non-voluntary, with fit testing and medical evaluation requirements) or changes to an existing respiratory protection program under section 5144 to address COVID-19 hazards; and
  • Consider halting all or part of operations to control the virus.
