SB County provides COVID-19 reporting form for businesses
San Bernardino County is upping its effort to help businesses keep their employees safe during the pandemic.
The COVD-19 Facility Outbreak/Cluster Reporting form, which the county introduced recently, “makes it easier to notify the county department of public health when a business suspects a potential COVID-19 outbreak at a specific facility or workplace,” according to a statement on the county’s website.
Employers or their employees can use the form to alert the department when it appears a facility is experiencing an unusual number of COVID-19 cases. All information will be kept confidential and used exclusively to help keep the potentially deadly virus from spreading.
“By receiving this information right away, we are able to immediately respond and nip a potential outbreak in the bud,” said Corwin Porter, the County Public Health director., in a statement. “Increasing testing of residents throughout the county and then reacting quickly when an outbreak is detected will help us slow the spread of the virus and get our lives back to normal.”
