7/23 Webisode: Contact Tracing – What Employers Need to Know

Employers know they play a critical role in helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keeping Buffalo Niagara’s economy moving forward.

Part of that responsibility includes working hand-in-hand with county health departments to effectively deploy contact tracing if an employee is diagnosed with COVID-19.

In response, The Partnership hosted a webisode with Dr. Gale Burstein, Commissioner, Erie County Department of Health and Daniel Stapleton, Public Health Director, Niagara County Department of Health.

Participants learned:

  • Employers’ role in contact tracing
  • Best practices for keeping records for employee interaction
  • What information is considered private and what information is public
  • Does an employer have a right to know an employee’s test results?
