I am curious what others are doing for work related exposures or possible exposures. In TX, our city insurance carrier (TML for most municipalities) is being very tight-lipped about how this is ultimately going to be addressed. If an officer becomes positive, is it going to be covered by worker comp? I know of at least one state-wide union that is pushing the state (TX) to declare any first responder who tests positive for COVID19 to be presumptive it was duty-related.
For our internal agency protocols, if someone (arrestee, involved person, etc) self-declares they have it or a family member states they have it and officers are exposed to that person, we are completing our normal first report of injury documentation. If we come into contact with someone who is confirmed to have COVID19 through official testing, we are doing the same documentation and also treating it like a blood exposure (additional paperwork and notification of City Infectious Disease Control Officer).
Anyone have other ideas or protocols you are using? Always looking for a better way!
