This document provides interim guidance on risk assessment and management of health-care workers (HCWs) in the context of COVID-19. Aimed to support ministries, health-care facility administrators, and occupational health staff, this guidance can be used to support the assessment of HCW exposure risk to patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 and provide advice depending on whether this risk is deemed low or high. This guidance also addresses considerations for symptomatic HCWs and includes a section on return-to-work considerations.
