Disclosures when co-workers have COVID

    I'll see if I can come across it...I recall reading something from the OCR posted earlier this year which essentially said it was OK for a CE to share with its workforce that someone has COVID but that it could not disclose the name of the coworker.  Now practically speaking, it may be relatively simple for people to "figure out" or "guess" who may be the one infected...but that does negate the guidance which spoke to disclosing the infection.

    If I find it...or if someone else finds it...I'll post it.
