WorkSafe & COVID19 Positive Test Results
In recent news for all businesses in Victoria, from 28 July 2020, employers are now required to notify WorkSafe Victoria immediately on becoming aware that an employee or an independent contractor or a contractor’s employee has received a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis and has attended the workplace during the infectious period. Which is considered to be 14 days prior to the onset of symptoms or a confirmed COVID‑19 diagnosis (whichever occurs first) and until the day on which the person receives a clearance from isolation from the Department of Health and Human Services. This is important for all Victorian businesses to know.
