“In epidemiology, an outbreak is a sudden increase in occurrences of a disease in a particular time and place. It may affect a small and localized group or impact upon thousands of people across an entire continent. Four linked cases of a rare infectious disease may be sufficient to constitute an outbreak.”

@Zanderific, your hr has reported the positive cases to spot Corp & your state health dept. your mgt team has reworked the schedule without those folks & spoken to the tm’s who work with the affected folks.
Don’t let rumors or heresay control you. Especially if you are not sick or had contact with folks.
Take the viewpoint from the sick person, no pay check for your weeks.
It’s not your job to judge or be jury for anyone. EEE66E20-6EC2-40C1-B5E1-E578CBDF6C01.jpeg

You could contact the health department in the city in which the Target store is located. At this point, the only health department notified of a positive test is the department of the city where the infected person lives.

I live in an area where there are are meat packing plants/slaughter houses. The cities where the plants were located had to wage a fight in the news to get info from the employers to find out how many infected people were working in their community.
