Confirmed Covid-19 Case in the Workplace

As an employer, when you become aware of a confirmed case of COVID-19 at your workplace, you must respond quickly to limit further exposure and contain potential outbreaks.

If there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 at your workplace, you must:

Immediately

- Direct the worker to return home and isolate immediately, whether or not they have symptoms. Once home, the worker must wait for further instructions from the Victorian Department of Health.
- Notify the department by completing the Employer COVID-19 notification form (See attached form) and emailing . If the Department of Health has not contacted you within 24 hours of notification please call 1300 651 160.
- Notify your workers, suppliers and customers that there is a confirmed positive case.
- Notify WorkSafe and other relevant industry bodies.

It is important that as a business you act quickly and in a positive way.

Which workplaces are required to use the Service Victoria QR Code app?

All workplaces require all visitors and workers to check-in using the free Service Victoria QR Code app with limited exceptions. This is to ensure that if a positive case visits the workplace, contact tracers can simply and rapidly access the details of everyone else who was there at the same time. Contact tracers can then let these people know they have been exposed to a positive case of COVID-19, and what actions to take.

To find out what exceptions there are and further information follow the link below:
