I. Would. Be. f***ing. Livid.
If my coworker did that motherf***er should be held responsible for not speaking up and the consequences.
**I also have had the potential coming in indirect contact with a known positive. Scary as f***, and it worked out ok. But I appreciate knowing ASAP. So I could be vigilant.
Meant a couple sleepless nights. Hours matter when my husband is ill. He can go from fine to septic in under two hours.
I totally agree, especially under these circumstances.
It brings up a good point though - Right to privacy, and right to know.
I think it clearly is Right to Know - beyond the limits of just the contact tracing. Names don't have to be disclosed, just information that "someone" within the walls tested positive, and ensure that the contact tracing has been completed and communicated to the appropriate people.
If we were back to work, I would want to know if someone in the building tested positive. I don't have to know who.
I probably don't need to know if someone working for the same company in a different building has tested positive ... I think.
