Return to work
Have you been exposed to COVID-19 or a close contact?
Filling out the Return to work form will help to assess your COVID exposure and provide you with information on what you need to do in response.
The SALHN Outbreak Management Team (OMT) are responsible for assessing all Return to Work forms and providing subsequent advice.
Rapid Antigen Testing (RAT)
All staff are only required to undertake a RAT when you have any symptoms of COVID-19.
If you are a close household contact, you should undertake RATs daily for 7 days.
If you return a positive RAT result, you must upload your positive RAT result to the SA Health website.
If you are COVID-19 positive or exposed to COVID-19, you must fill out the Return to Work Form.
The wellbeing of staff is a priority and we encourage you to take steps to look after your wellbeing.
