• An employee has been in close contact (within six feet for more than 15 minutes) with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19
• An employee has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 symptoms but has not been tested
• An employee who lives with someone who has been in close contact with someone displaying COVID-19 symptoms, and
• An employee who is a restaurant patron at an establishment that later announces an employee at the restaurant is positive for COVID-19.
