Helping Your Team Understand Quarantine

  • Human Resources

With the relentless news cycle and new guidance coming from all directions right now, we know that many of our Credit Union and small business friends may be struggling under the extra burden of trying to understand and explain complicated new directions to employees.

With that in mind, we thought it would be helpful to share some details that our VP of Human Resources, Katy Zaleski, put together for our team after a conversation with the Director of Occupational Health at Marshfield Clinic (in Marshfield, Wisconsin).

In the Central Wisconsin Area, Marshfield Clinic, Aspirus, and Ascension Hospitals have information available to help you self-check and pre-screen for COVID-19 symptoms as well as dedicated phone numbers for their patients to call for more help. (If your business is served by another hospital system, similar services are likely available.)

Here are several points to get you started managing your team’s questions and your business’s policies around quarantine and the subsequent discontinuation of home isolation (aka return to work):

While we’re happy to offer you a resource to prompt more research as you set your business policies, we’d be remiss if we didn’t add the caveat that this information is current for our teams as of today, 4/13/2020 and may change or may not apply in your area. Our best advice is to use this as a template and consult your employment law attorney for the specifics in your area.
