Q: People in my close family has tested positive for Covid, I want to get tested for work but they are telling me to come
I am trying to get tested but everywhere is full, when I told my job I’m not comfortable with coming in until I get tested they told me it’s fine and to just wear a mask. He even implied that regardless if I’m positive or not I can come it. My manager is also working even after testing positive and I just wanted to know is this allowed? It doesn’t seem like they even want me to quarantine. Also many other people have tested positive for the virus at my job and they are being told to come in as well.
A: You can call the State of NJ or the Board of Health of the town where you are working. You can tell them it violates the CDC regulations. If they take some action against you, you should consult with a lawyer
A: I would advise you to talk to a NJ employment lawyer to advise you on the situation.
