All employees who participate in on-campus testing and receive a positive result will be notified by a Babson clinical staff member and their local board of health or a member of the state's contact tracing collaborative (CTC).
Close contact is defined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as a person with exposure to an individual with COVID-19 for more than 15 minutes and within 6 feet starting from two days before illness onset. Further information is available from the CDC.
- The Babson Human Resources team will be notified about any staff member identified as a close contact of a positive case for further investigation. The local board of health of the employee’s hometown will manage official tracing and monitoring.
- Answer the Call: If you are contacted by a public health official or contact tracing team member, answer your cell phone to protect your health, and the health of others.
Privacy of all persons involved will be respected. The name of the person with COVID-19 will not be revealed publicly or to close contacts by public health officials.
