10/29 Team Member Tested Positive for COVID-19

Team Member Tested Positive for COVID-19

Hello, We are notifying everyone that one of our team members has tested positive for COVID-19. Here are the timelines and key dates as we know them.

On Sunday, November 22 Jamie McLennan woke up with symptoms that included congestion (stuffy nose) and a headache. Jamie visited his doctor who gave him medicine and did not advise him to get a COVID test at that time. We asked Jamie if he had any reason to believe he was exposed to COVID. Jamie said he had no reason to believe he was exposed.

We made the decision to have Jamie stay at home and ask him to get a negative test to return to work.

[CORRECTION] On Friday, November 27th Jamie went to get a COVID test.

On Sunday, November 29th Jamie received a call from the testing facility that he tested positive for COVID-19. We are waiting for information from Jamie’s Doctor.

The last date Jamie was in PA, was Friday November 20.
The last date Jamie was in NJ, was Monday November 16.

This information is for the entire company. This applies to NJ and PA.

COVID-19 April 27th Update

We Made it 30 Days ! ! ! 
Expect Another 30  (Maybe 60) Days
It’s been 30 days it feels more like a year good job getting it done and let’s keep our efforts up for the next 30 maybe 60 days.
Asked To Limit Contact

I asked you to please limit your interactions the expectation was that you came to work and went home and I know a number of you did that.
Forgot To Ask If Needs Aren’t Met

What I forgot to ask is that were all your needs met. My assumption was getting a full-time paycheck would satisfy your needs I didn’t realize some people had needs beyond that, I’m sorry about that omission.
Respectfully Tell Those Near You

If you are needing to work to pay the rent or satisfy other needs. Realizing that a haircut and rent are different. A haircut is a want a rent payment is a need. Respectfully tell those near you that you are flying in and out of the country or visiting hotspots like Long Island so they can take extra precautions.
Asking To Drop Wants 

I will continue to ask you to drop your wants like hanging out in the backyard with friends. We need to keep social distancing up for another 30 maybe 60 days. I know it’s difficult and every effort you make helps us continue to operate and satisfy those paychecks.

A good resource that’s not politicized and shares the facts.

Keep Social Distancing During Holidays

Keep Social Distancing During Holidays

There are no exceptions to social distancing rules. With the Passover and Easter holidays coming, I wanted to send a reminder. Do not gather with extended family. Do not gather for religious celebrations. Do not open up your social circle because of the holiday.

Instead, find a new way to connect and celebrate. Use your company access to meet.google.com to host a video gathering. Try zoom.com for another video meeting option.

Stay apart now so we can get together later.

Close Contact Did Not Occur

Update – No Close Contact

Yesterday we reported an individual had possible exposure to someone who tested positive to COVID-19.

Today we are reporting there was no close contact. This is an important distinction per the CDC guidelines.

Close contact is being less than 6 feet away from an infected person for a long time or being coughed on by an infected person. Neither of these occurred.

Here is the CDC definition.

3Close contact is defined as—

a) being within approximately 6 feet (2 meters) of a COVID-19 case for a prolonged period of time; close contact can occur while caring for, living with, visiting, or sharing a healthcare waiting area or room with a COVID-19 case

– or –

b) having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (e.g., being coughed on)

Details of the contact.

The individual was at the house week before the patient tested positive.

The individual was not closer than 10 feet, close enough to be seen waving, no direct contact.

The individual was in the same house for about an hour.

What you should do

Follow the guidelines we have been sharing. This event is a good reminder to follow the guidelines. Stay 6 feet apart. Don’t crowd someone else’s space. Wear your N95 mask when working within 6 feet of someone else.

  • Clean your hands often
  • Avoid close contact
  • Cover your mouth and nose when in public
  • Keep 6 feet between yourself and others
  • Reduce your social circle

Review the CDC self-check tool to know the symptoms. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/testing.html

Your actions affect others. Refusal to follow the guidelines puts people at undue risk. Infection in just a few of the team members can shut down a whole department. Just one department closer would have a serious impact on the company.

What we are doing

The area was disinfected. The individual was sent home as a precaution. The individual will remain home until Thursday. On Thursday they will return to work on the 2nd shift as long as they remain symptom-free.

Please stay focused on distancing and avoiding close contact. If you need to work closely with someone, find another way or wear the mask you have.

Be well and Thank you.
