SYMPTOMS: What should I do if I show symptoms of COVID-19?

If an employee is showing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath), the employee should immediately inform their manager that they need to leave the workplace. The employee and/or manager should also notify Human Resources by emailing

The employee should immediately contact their health care provider AND the Coronavirus call center for the county they live in to get public health guidance on next steps. King County Novel Coronavirus Call Center at 206-477-3977; Snohomish Heath District 1-800-525-0127

The employee should immediately begin at-home isolation, and next steps should be made in accordance with guidance from their county health district and the employee’s health care provider.
