          如果员工的医疗条件的雇主获悉,如冠状病毒的诊断,用人单位可以不共享这些信息。在ADA,FMLA和wc的保密规定,只有那些谁“需要知道”可能了解诊断。它可能很难证明,例如,生产线经理“需要知道”员工的具体诊断。相反,直线经理可能只需要知道员工会在休假和无法工作。

          Therefore, employers should keep an employee’s medical condition and diagnosis confidential and private unless there are true health and safety circumstances deemed by the Department of Health. It is always the employee’s right to release and share their own medical condition information.

          Employers may educate employees on how they can best protect themselves and what steps employees should take if they were exposed or experience symptoms. The Department of Health will conduct a trace and contact employee who may have been exposed and need to be quarantined.
