BRC COVID-19 Preparedness Plan
COVID-19 Testing Locations
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and wish to get yourself tested, please visit the link below to find a testing location near you.
Testing sites are designed to keep you and health care workers safe. Sometimes you may stay in your car. Other sites will screen you before you come indoors. Many sites will require an appointment before you arrive in order to ensure they’ve collected your contact and insurance information.
Please review directions specific to each site before you go.
Visitor and Employee Health Screening Checklist
Hourly Employees – Hourly employees will be prompted with an electronic version of the “Visitor and Employee Health Screening Checklist” when they punch in each workday. Hourly employees that answer “Yes” to any of the screening questions will be advised to go home, stay away from other people, and contact their health care provider. However, if for some reason the symptomatic person cannot go home upon request, they will isolate outside or in a room with a door that can be closed, located near an exit, until arrangements are made. Foremen on job sites will complete the punch in process for construction employees and ask the required checklist questions before punching the employees in.
Salary Employees – Salary employees will be provided with and execute a COVID-19 Symptoms Agreement which will state that such employees agree not to come to work if any of the symptoms on the “Visitor and Employee Health Screening Checklist” are exhibited. In addition, a list of the symptoms will be posted at all entrances of the building to remind salary employees not to enter if they have any of the symptoms. Salary employees will verify they do not have any symptoms when they are entered into the attendance log.
Guests & Visitors – Guests and visitors will be provided with a paper version of the “Visitor and Employee Health Screening Checklist” or asked the questions orally before continuing into any BRC building, shop, job trailer, or jobsite. Guests or visitors that answer “Yes” to any of the screening questions will be advised to exit the building.
COVID-19 and When to Return to Work
Unconfirmed COVID-19 Cases – If any hourly or salary employee, guest or visitor, customer or client leaves work or does not come to work because they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, Jack Szmanda will maintain communication with and gather information from that person.
Confirmed COVID-19 Cases – If any hourly or salary employee, guest or visitor, customer or client is told by a health care provider that they have COVID-19, they are to report it directly to Jack Szmanda. Persons confirmed to have COVID-19 are not required to inform any other BRC employee but may inform their direct supervisor. Supervisors who are informed by an employee that the employee has COVID-19 are to instruct them to report the test results to Jack Szmanda if they have not done so already. Upon learning that an employee or other person is confirmed to have COVID-19, Jack Szmanda will maintain communication with and gather information from that employee or person to identify those that may have come into contact with the person. Following the information gathering, Jack will inform all employees at the office, shop, or jobsite (as well as the GC at the jobsite, if applicable) who may have been exposed to the person of their possible exposure to COVID-19, while exercising the utmost care to ensure confidentiality is maintained. Such persons who may have been exposed to COVID-19 will be directed to self-quarantine for 14 days and work from home if possible.
Returning to Work – Employees who leave work or do not come to work because of COVID-19 symptoms or a COVID-19 diagnosis will be provided with the MN Department of Health “COVID-19 and When to Return to Work” document to ensure they do not return to work too early. Such employees shall not return to work until being told by Jack Szmanda that they may do so.
