Return to Work Guidelines / COVID-19

These guidelines were designed to assist in providing managers with clear guidelines for return-to-work requirements in light of evolving issues related to COVID-19. We will consider mitigating circumstances in cases that this policy fails to fully consider.

Timeframe
These guidelines will be effective immediately and will be in place until at least April 15. Before April 15, we will re-assess and determine whether these policies will continue.

Self Isolation Guidelines / COVID-19
Objective
These guidelines were designed to assist in providing managers with clear guidelines for determining when an employee must be sent home to self isolate in light of evolving issues related to COVID-19. We may consider mitigating circumstances in cases that this policy fails to fully consider. CDC recommends that employees who appear to have acute respiratory illness symptoms (i.e. cough, shortness of breath, fever, fatigue) upon arrival to work or those who become sick during the day should be separated from other employees and be sent home immediately.

Timeframe
These guidelines will be effective immediately and will be in place until at least April 15. Before April 15, we will re-assess and determine whether these policies will continue.

Send the employee home when:
• They self-report a respiratory illness
• Their symptoms include persistent cough, shortness of breath, fatigue
• They self-report having a temperature of 100.4 or above and any of the symptoms listed above
• They self-report being in direct contact with, or caring for a self-isolated or quarantined person
o Minimum 14 day self-isolation AND notify HR and your manager
• They report being in direct contact with a person with a confirmed or presumed COVID-19 diagnosis.
o Minimum 14 day self-isolation AND notify HR and your manager

No need to send an employee home when:
• They report mild sniffles, sneezing, or congestion related to seasonal allergy recurrence
Check with your manager and, if necessary, HR
• If you have any questions about these guidelines
• You encounter an unusual scenario related to individual illness in the workplace

Quarantine / Self-isolation
• If you need to be out of the office, please work with your supervisor to determine how much of your
work might be done remotely. Additionally, Crutchfield reserves the right to place any employee on
leave, paid or unpaid, and to restrict any employee’s access to any of our facilities at Crutchfield’s
sole discretion.
