Why Should Employers Be Concerned About COVID-19 Symptom Tracking?

November 3, 2020

The Ontario government has mandated that employers are responsible to track their employees symptoms related to COVID-19 before they enter the workplace. If you are relying on your employees to self-report – you are leaving your organization at significant risk. According to the Ontario government website if an employee tests positive for COVID-19 the employer has just 4 days to provide their proof of symptom tracking to public health. Employers can take the time, expense and risk out of trying to track all of their employees symptoms, using a secure phone number that employees call before coming to work to answer standard symptom tracking questions. Any response the employee gives that indicates a potential symptom of COVID immediately gets sent via alert to HR to notify them to follow up. Preventing employees from coming to the workplace with any potential COVID symptoms is your best defense against the spread of the Coronavirus. Employees use just their smartphone and their voice to report on their health, and your organization is protected against the liability associated with the Ontario government’s tracking mandate.
