Employees and Virus symtoms5/2
On Thursday AM an Employee was in his car (not in building yet) he rolled his window down and told another Employee he was sick,, 2nd employee told him to go home, i called a short while later and he did sound sick. i asked him his symtoms. chilled fever upchucking etc so i told him to go to the doctor...
he called me later in the day and told me he was feeling better , i asked him if he had gone to the doctor. No he said i told him he could not come back until he had gone to the doctor,, he did not like that.
Later I found out (We always do don't We) that he had gotten a stimulus check and had done some imbibing,
Friday he goes to the doctor and I had told him to tell the VA doctor about thursday not only how he was feeling now.. He called and they have now tested Him and he is under a do not return to work until test results are in...
My bet is He will not do that again as it is gonna cost him $$$$
What we have is a bunch of smart people wearing mask and protecting themselves telling a bunch of less intelligent people don't worry, all clear go rub up on each other and mask, what mask who needs one...
How about other Shops, Employees paying attention or Not ?
Illinois implemented a mask at all times when in public on May 1. Met 6 people on a bicycle trail yesterday, I was the only one wearing a mask. Illinois infection numbers are still rapidly climbing, but groups, towns, and opposite party politicians are suing to get out of their homes. I read a study where it could take 2 years for our country to reach herd immunity, the only way they saw to limit the virus infection rate. Won't be a lot of us old times around in 2 years!
James, oh to be young and dumb again. Don’t be to hard on him if he is a good employee. We all make mistakes, especially in trying times.
We are still shutdown but are developing a COVID-19 plan including masking, stay at home, and other rules. We will be paying people that are sent home.
We are going to see if we can get an exemption to open.
We are also developing different rules for installation, right now guys have to travel in different vehicles
I think, if someone calls in sick, they have to go to the Dr. We just came back to work this Monday. I did get a PPP loan, so if anyone does get the virus, we will cover them for their wages if they lose time. As for Social distancing, our shop is fairly large and I left it up to the guys. We had a meeting, we discussed all the issues. I am not going to be a policeman.
I am the oldest person working here, (70) and I do have a heart condition, so no one is more at risk than myself. When I see, in Michigan, where I am, 5% of the deaths
My guy came back negative so he is back at work... and i think very relieved!!
You're right James, read that some studies are saying this could be around for another 2 years.
Rich C - just to clarify the Illinois mask policy - it's NOT mask at all times in public.
Thanks Joe. The multi use trail I use is 6' wide, so staying 6' apart is impossible unless one of you leaves the trail.
It has been crazy situation but I guess it would be best to stay at home and if employees call and notify that they are sick, better let them get checked than sorry.
