In the spirit of our Traditions (1 & 4) please help prevent the further spread of COVID-19.
MANAGING A POSITIVE COVID-19 CASE AT YOUR HOME GROUP
Report a known positive COVID-19 case at a meeting. Personal information will remain anonymous. The only information that will be shared is the meeting name, exposure date, and location. It will be noted on the website. Use this FORM.
- COORDINATE WITH THE FACILITY WHERE YOUR MEETING IS HELD
Is the facility okay with your group posting on the website about a possible exposure? Does the facility want your group to sanitize after a positive case or hire a professional? If they want it professionally cleaned, who will pay for it?
- NOTIFY MEMBERS THROUGH THE NA NASHVILLE WEBSITE BY REPORTING POSITIVE CASES ANONYMOUSLY
If you have the facility’s permission, either a group representative or the member can report a positive case through a special form on nanashville.org. If you don’t have the facility’s permission or are uncomfortable using the website, go to the next step.
- HAVE THE CHAIRPERSON OF THE GROUP CREATE A DIGITAL PHONE LIST
Suggest all members that want to be notified of possible coronavirus exposure text the chairperson or send an email to the group. It would then be the group’s responsibility to make sure all members present are contacted in light of a positive case.
- NOTIFY FACILITY AND FOLLOW PROTOCOL AS DETERMINED BY THE FACILITY OR PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS
If the building is shut down following a positive case, consider moving to a zoom meeting during the timeframe. The building may need to be empty for a period of time following a positive test. Submit any meeting changes in the meeting’s schedule to the website. Follow CDC guidelines and facility requirements for disinfecting and quarantining the building.
When in doubt visit the websites of the CDC and state and local requirements to be sure your home group is in compliance.
