It’s important to proactively reach out when you have a positive COVID case because the rumor mill often starts even before your managers know about anything, and anxiety and fear are very real. Contact everyone one at a time, if you can, explain how you’re determining why we’ve excluded everyone that we have (6ft, 15+ consecutive mins, etc.), and why we haven’t excluded others (they don’t meet that criteria, the risk is much lower). You can let them know that you have an experienced clinical team supporting you, and that you're following all the best guidance of the CDC and public health experts. We find that proactive 1:1 outreach can really help because so much of the anxiety is the rumors, lack of understanding, etc.

Have a good (and socially distant) weekend.
