Michigan Department of Labor & Economic Opportunity’s Symptoms Web Application helps employers comply with Executive Order 2020-97 and implement a COVID-19 symptoms screening questionnaire for associates. Users should enter information daily to help identify symptoms that might be caused by the virus and to make decisions about when to seek appropriate medical care. Some employers may ask or require associates to use this tool to identify potential cases of COVID-19 before it can spread through the workplace. Employees will have an objective tool to inform their employer that they should not be coming to work without having to share symptom-specific information. If employers choose to participate, employers can create a profile and start to implement at their company. Once an employer creates a profile, a code will be generated that can be shared with associates to use on their profiles.
Local and state public health will also use the collective data to help identify the potential for new outbreaks of the disease. Additional benefits of MI Symptoms include:
- Promotes individual health and safety by identifying potential symptoms of the virus and linking symptomatic individuals with resources for further action.
- Helps residents return to work safely.
Our office will monitor COVID-19 updates closely and will send out additional announcements as we become aware of any updates. You can also review these updates on our website at http://www.thomas-and-company.com/covid-19/ too.
