For public good, you have to notify co workers and anyone else who may have had contact. You then need to have those people quarantine and get tested as well. Your employee health should be able to help coordinate that.
You can do that without giving the name of the infected person..."It has come to our attention that you have recently been in contact with or potentially have been in contact with someone who recently tested positive for COVID. Please contact employee health for next steps so you can quarantine correctly and possibly be tested. They will ask you some basic questions about your current symptoms and what to watch for. They will direct you on what to do next." Something like that. I assume your facility has a policy or protocol in place by now so staff who can work remote, can while in quarantine.
Its important to have those exposed tested and quarantined as appropriate right away.
