PSIA-AASI Eastern Division Covid Staff Policy – 09/18/2022
Coronavirus/COVID-19 Policy & Information for Staff
The Eastern Division of PSIA-AASI takes the health and well-being of our staff and members seriously. As a result, we have prepared the following policies and guidelines; however, we reserve the right to change these policies, with very little notice, if conditions change throughout the season.
- As recommended by the CDC, and other leading health and scientific organizations, we encourage all staff to be vaccinated as the safest option for themselves, their fellow staff and our members.
- While working or travelling for PSIA-AASI events or training, employees must comply with all business, federal and local policies that may include, but are not limited to, requirements for vaccination, mask usage, social distancing and more.
- Employees who test positive or experience any COVID-19 symptoms prior to work or training should contact the office immediately to withdraw. Employees who test positive must not work for 5 days, and we recommend isolating from others. If symptom free after 5 days, the employee may return to work. If symptoms persist, they may return to work once they have been fever free for 24 hours. Symptoms may include: fever or chills; cough; shortness of breath; fatigue; muscle or body aches; headache; new loss of taste or smell; sore throat; congestion or runny nose; nausea or vomiting; diarrhea.
- Employees who have been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has COVID-19 in the past 10 days, must wear a mask, regardless of their vaccination status, when in close contact with fellow employees, members, resort staff and guests. After 5 days from exposure (on the 6th day) they should test for COVID. If negative, they should continue to wear a mask for the full 10 days; if positive they should isolate as defined in number 3 above.
- Employees, regardless of vaccination status may elect to stay in a single room, when available; however, they must pay any additional fees that are incurred as a result.
Finally, we recognize that people’s opinions and choices related to COVID-19 vary, are confidential, and deeply personal. As such, harassment will not be tolerated. I invite anyone who experiences or witnesses harassment to report it to Don Haringa, email@example.com, 518-452-6095. Harassment may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination.
