What happens if an employee tests positive?

TNT follows the guidance of Fargo Cass Public Health and CDC. The employee completes quarantine based on Public Health recommendations. Upon completion of quarantine, Fargo Cass Public Health sends a form that confirms they completed the recommended time of quarantine. We require our employees to present the Fargo Cass Public Health Quarantine Completion Form to return to work.

If at any time the employee may have exposed anyone at TNT, we will contact trace and reach out to all those possibly exposed.

*Length of quarantine is determined by a number of factors. Fargo Cass Public Health informs those exposed/positive cases how long quarantine should be.

What happens if an employee is exposed?

Similarly, if an employee is exposed they complete a quarantine and only return to work with the completed paperwork from Fargo Cass Public Health. If at any time during their quarantine they test positive or develop symptoms, we contact trace and inform those who may be affected.

What happens if a client/child with COVID enters the facility?

We inform all those whom were exposed to the individual. You will recieve an email but also expect a phone call from TNT.  Those exposed, clients and staff alike, can  return until they complete quarantine as directed by Fargo Cass Public Health.

Effective August 24th, everyone is expected to wear a mask, including athletes. Exceptions to this rule include:

  • When distancing can be assured
