Practice good hygiene
In addition to keeping your distance and staying home, you need to monitor yourself and protect those who live you.
- Wear a face mask. (Remember your face mask is protecting those around you.)
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds — especially before eating/preparing food as well as after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and throw used tissues in a lined trash can. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after you sneeze.
- Don't share personal household items such as dishes, towels, or bedding.
- Clean all "high-touch" surfaces with disinfecting wipes every day. This includes counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables.
Monitor yourself for symptoms.
- Check yourself for fever by taking your temperature twice a day and remain alert for COVID-19 symptoms.
- Once you are symptom free for 14-days, you can return to work at an Apple facility if required by your role.
- If you do get sick, reach out to your doctor and inform your manager.
If you’re experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19, it’s important that you stay home in order to protect others from exposure.
Prepare an isolation space
- Stay in your own room, away from other people, as much as possible. The room should have good ventilation and airflow, such as a window that can be opened.
- Ideally, you should have access to a separate bathroom.
- Prepare your isolation room with supplies so you can be as self-sufficient as possible.
Keep your distance
- Stay home while you’re isolating and keep at least 6 to 10 feet away from others in your home.
- If you need to see your doctor, call ahead and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the healthcare provider's office to take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.
If you’re identified as a close contact of someone who has either tested positive for COVID-19 or someone who is exhibiting symptoms but has not yet received test results, you should isolate at home and monitor yourself for symptoms for 14-days. If you are notified that your close contact has tested negative for COVID-19, you can return to work at an Apple facility as long as you are symptom free.
