A coworker and full blown trump cult member and covid

A coworker who is a tremendous hugely trump cultist, is personally effected by the Covid 19 pandemic.

This person repeats the trump propaganda daily and flip flop as he does. They were also in completely in denial that Covid exists, claiming itís a Democratic Hoax and all the rhetoric.
We were notified today that one of their family members who lives in the home has Tested positive for Covid.

We will have to watch and see how this plays out when they return to work.

1. And PINO Makes "Jokes" About It

I'll bet your coworker isn't laughing at this punchline.
Ten year old with sniffles...
Hilarious, ain't it?

2. "Affected."

 

How are they able to give out private health information about your co-workerís family members?

7. Good question. But how else would they establish the need for tracing and self isolation? . . .

On edit, I don't see that specific information about the affected individual is required or permitted, but informing co-workers of which of their compatriots could be infected seems a necessity if tracing was to be effective.

10. It's pretty obvious who is not in the shop

And I think HIPA has taken a vacation in the name of containment.

11. No, HIPAA has not taken a vacation.

 

An personís infection is not announced to a group at large. That is not how it works.

13. HIPAA is a healthcare entity law

It doesnít pertain to the general public.

Although each individual workplace may have its own rules HIPAA does not pertain to non healthcare disclosure.

For example, if an employee of a workplace is pregnant, and going out on leave, itís not illegal for a workplace to disclose that. Unless, of course, the employs a patient of the workplace, (OB/GYN employee)

If someone I know sees me in the grocery store, and tells me she has cancer I can go home and tell my husband. If, on the other hand, I work at the hospital, and she comes in for treatment of said cancer I could be prosecuted if I went home and told my husband.

14. Who is "they"?

If the co-worker told people about his or her family member's condition, I don't believe that violates any law.

16. Do you think the co-worker's relative's healthcare provider told them?

I rather doubt it.

17. How in hell would I know? What an odd question.

 

I gathered that the employer told them, which they should not do. Maybe ask the op?

4. I don't know . . .

A member of my family is similar: fully indoctrinated cult member, etc. This person lost a friend of about 40 years to the virus early on -- one of only six deaths in our semi-rural county -- and is STILL in denial about the seriousness of the situation. It's baffling.

6. If your coworker's family member is asymptomatic,

s/he will probably be even more intolerable.
