The Prince’s Government encourages workers returning from a stay abroad to get tested.
You can contact the national screening center on 92 05 55 00.
The presence of symptoms can be sufficient grounds for an employee to return home immediately or start teleworking. They should take a PCR or antigen test and consult a local doctor if necessary.
- If the result is positive, the employee should self-isolate for 7 days
- If the result is negative, they can return to work
You should contact the Office of Occupational Medicine on 22.214.171.124 and/or by filling out a secured form to inform them of the COVID+/highly probable case, give them the contact details of the person involved (surname, first name, date of birth, mobile phone number, email address, CCSS or SPME social insurance number) and draw up a list of persons with whom the employee has been in contact with this same information (last name, first name, date of birth, mobile phone number , email address, CCSS or SPME social insurance number)
An epidemiological investigation can then begin for the occupational doctor.
If a colleague/employee has tested positive for COVID-19 and is at their workplace, they must immediately return home and self-isolate for 7 days (from the onset of symptoms or a positive test, if asymptomatic).
Asymptomatic contacts can continue to work and just need to take a PCR or antigen test on day 2 or 3.
An employer may not ask to be informed of the test result, which is a matter of medical confidentiality, in order to accept the employee's return to work. Nor is it permitted to have tests carried out to determine whether employees are COVID-19 positive (advice from the CCIN, May 2020).
An employer cannot ask to receive the results of the PCR tests of his or her employees. The employer can contact the office of occupational medicine (OMT) to obtain confirmation of the possible response of the work of its employees following the epidemiological investigation carried out.
