Due to increasing COVID-19 cases in our region, the city has created a new COVID-19 intake form (www.carlsbadca.gov/intake) for employees to report a workplace exposure or a positive COVID-19 test. This information will only be used by the COVID-19 task force to conduct contact tracing and determine when employees can safely return to the workplace.
When to complete the COVID-19 intake form
If you have tested positive for COVID-19
If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for a total of 15 minutes or more) with someone with COVID-19
The COVID-19 intake form will:
Ensure all required information is collected quickly that is needed for the city’s COVID-19 task force to conduct timely contact tracing in the workplace
Help the COVID-19 task force determine when employees can safely return to the workplace
Be followed up with communication from a member of the COVID-19 task force to discuss next steps
Be accessible on the city’s intranet homepage and the staff webpage
Employees should not use the COVID-19 intake form to seek medical advice from city staff. If you are seeking medical advice, please contact your own health care provider.
Most importantly, do not come to work if you have any symptoms of a potentially contagious illness to reduce further spread of any illnesses. The symptoms of COVID-19 vary, and in many vaccinated people have shown to be very mild. When in doubt, talk to your health care provider and get a tested at one of the county’s free testing sites or through your health care provider.
