  • Having contact with another staff member who has symptoms
  • Becoming aware that another staff member has tested positive or is showing symptoms
  • Isolating due to surgery or another hospital procedure
  • Travelling abroad.

It also gives information about:
  • How staff should inform you

Many of the events covered by the policy give you flexibility in deciding what (if any) action to take, allowing you to respond to particular circumstances in the right way.
