General advice for employers

Don’t send staff to be tested at either COVID clinics (this is an external website) or through GP referrals unless they meet testing criteria.

Don’t send staff to COVID-19 clinics or GPs for medical clearances or certificates.

Encourage and practice quality personal hygiene, as you would in the winter flu season — this includes covering coughs and sneezes, washing hands often with soap or sanitiser, and staying away from work if unwell.

Anyone instructed to self-isolate by a medical professional must take the request seriously and stay home to avoid putting others at risk. This means you don’t leave your property, go to work or school, go on outings or have visitors. The only time to leave the house is to seek medical attention.

Keep up to date with latest advice from the Department of Health (this is an external website).
