C. ATTESTATION & TESTING REQUIREMENTS (self testing effective Dec. 8, 2021):
NOTE: All individuals on Arnold AFB must wear a facial covering indoors while in “high” or “substantial” community spread according to the CDC. Unvaccinated must also maintain physical distancing.
* “Close contact” - being within six feet of a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, whether wearing a mask or not, for a cumulative total of 15 minutes within a 24 hour period, starting two days before the person developed symptoms or, for asymptomatic individuals, two days prior to the day the COVID test was conducted. Further, fully vaccinated persons who come into close contact with COVID-19 positive individual(s) should be tested 3-5 days after exposure, even if asymptomatic. Most fully vaccinated people with no COVID-like symptoms do not need to quarantine or be restricted from work following an exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, if they follow CDC guidance regarding testing and masking recommendations.
There are several options available to employees if an employee feels that their specific worksite is an unsafe working condition due to the possibility of contracting COVID-19. First and foremost, employees can utilize the chain of command to notify their supervisors of the unsafe working condition. If utilizing the chain of command does not provide relief, or if an employee has reservations utilizing the chain of command, then employees have several other options on what they can do to report an unsafe working condition.
The chain of command may also be utilized to seek telework or administrative leave, particularly as a result of being a high risk person through the OPM/AFMC High Risk Personnel process. The High Risk Personnel process can be found with policy 20200322 AEDC COVID-19, Guidance to Supervisors.
