Should i tell work i have covid?Watch
Just phone and say what you've said on here - that you were diagnosed this morning so will have to self-isolate, they shouldn't be annoyed with you!
i was just diagnosed this morning, and have been self isolating for a while. I havent been to work since i was exposed to it. I hate calling work it makes me so anxious - how would ieven phrase it?
Yes. They need to tell the people you were in contact with to self-isolate as well. Their health, and the health of others at your workplace matter equally as much as yours. Just tell them "I'm self-isolating as I have caught COVID". That's all you need to say.
Yes of course, you will definitely need to contact work and notify them that you have been tested positive for the coronavirus and will not be able to go to work due to self-isolation and following government public health guidelines.
Since you displayed symptoms. Doesn't matter, they could still have it. You might not display symptoms for a few days, but you would still have the virus, and you could still pass it on to other people.
yes. you're saying you havent been into work since coming into contact, so i'm guessing you have been isolating for some time. therefore you at least need to call them to say that you'll be isolating for even longer. all you need to do is call them, tell them your name and say that you were self isolating and was diagnosed this morning and that you'll be taking another 10 days off. what's the worst that could happen? once it's done, that's it.
