COVID-19 Hotline: (505) 606-2667

PLEASE NOTE: If you have a question about Lab policy, please direct it to your responsible line manager (RLM) — this will help the hotline to prioritize calls from symptomatic employees.


Critical documents and resources for on-site workers/visitors

 

TOP 10 THINGS TO DO WHEN COMING ON-SITE FOR ANY REASON

  1. Masks are mandatory on Lab property. Be sure to have one and to use it while on-site.
  2. Wash or sanitize your hands as often as you can.
  3. Use the daily health screening self-assessment checklist to determine health and wellness.
  4. Read the pre-job brief guidance to determine risk before coming on-site.
  5. Use these control strategies to mitigate risk during on-site work.
  6. Use these guidelines on cleaning and disinfection of work areas, PPE, face masks/coverings, and respirators to mitigate virus transmission.
  7. Review this list of cleaning and disinfecting products from the American Chemistry Council to make sure you have the right supplies.
  8. Use the verbal screening and temperature check protocols to frequently verify health and wellness.
  9. Review the Lab's COVID-19 policies for on-site work and activities: COVID-19 Risk and Exposure Control Measures for On-Site Work Activities
  10. Employees returning on-site to work must complete UTrain module 49476 (also available via ExTrain) which explains how to protect yourself and your coworkers from spreading the virus on Lab property — whether to perform mission-essential work or for periodic trips to the Lab to support ongoing telework activities.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have a question about Lab policy, please direct it to your responsible line manager (RLM) — this will help the hotline to prioritize calls from symptomatic employees.

 

  • Tested for COVID-19? Sick employee? Family or friends sick? Use the special hotline for all questions about COVID-19 at the Lab.
  • A nurse from Occupational Medicine is part of the team answering these calls.
  • Managers, see what to do if an employee is asked to self-isolate or is under quarantine due to COVID-19.
  • If you have COVID-19 symptoms, DO NOT enter any health care facility without first making contact by phone.
  • COVID-19 Risk Assessment
FIND TESTING CENTERS

Medical Center

What should a manger do if an employee calls in or reports to work sick?

  • If on site, employees who test positive for COVID-19 (and have not informed a manager of pending test results), should be sent home immediately. This includes employees working in offsite leased facilities. Managers should call the LANL COVID-19 hotline at 606-2667, and be prepared to provide the location of the infected employee’s personal workspace and common areas used by the employee. Hotline operators will then trigger all other required notifications through the Emergency Operations Support Center (EOSC). The employee should follow the instructions provided by the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH is the agency that notifies the employee if there is a positive test).
  • If the employee is offsite or at home already, managers should call the LANL COVID-19 hotline at 606-2667, and be prepared to provide the location of the infected employee’s lab-located personal workspace and common areas used by the employee at the lab, as well as the most recent day that the employee has been at the lab. Hotline operators will then trigger all other required notifications through the Emergency Operations Support Center (EOSC). The employee should follow the instructions provided by the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH is the agency that notifies the employee if there is a positive test). Additional information for employees is covered in the next question.
