Day Pitney Advisory "HIPAA Considerations When An Employee Tests Positive for COVID-19," was featured on a syndicated Verify This TV segment. The advisory was written by Susan Huntington, a Partner and chair of the firm's Healthcare practice, and Theresa Kelly, an Employment and Labor Partner, discussing how employers should still "ask or strongly encourage" employees to report a positive COVID-19 test result, but workers "cannot be forced to disclose test results" under current law.
