How is contact tracing done?
  1. Upon identification of a suspect, probable, or confirmed case, the designated Safety and Health Offices shall initiate contact tracing within the office/floor/building to identify 70% of all possible close contacts within 24 hours and 100% within 48 hours. Contact tracing shall also commence for contacts of suspect cases upon identification while waiting for specimen collection for SARS- CoV-2 diagnostic testing or RT-PCR results. Identification of second and third - generation close contacts is highly encouraged.
  2. The Safety and Health Officer shall notify the contacts of suspect cases and advise them to self-monitor and adhere to stringent minimum public health standards. If the suspect case turns out to be probable or confirmed, their contacts shall be instructed to undergo quarantine or isolation, whichever is appropriate.
