New Law Requires Employers To Report All Positive COVID-19 PCR Tests

September 24, 2020

Senate Bill 1159 (SB 1159), signed by Governor Newsom, creates new reporting requirements for employers regarding COVID-19, effective September 17, 2020.

Under SB 1159 California employers with five (5) or more employees must report to their claims administrator via email or fax, any instance of which they are aware an employee tested positive for COVID-19, or risk substantial financial penalty by the State.

To report a COVID-19 Positive Test, use the Positive COVID-19 Report Form. You can find more information on our SB 1159 resource page, along with complete instructions on how and when to report a positive test. Please view these FAQs to ensure you are fully informed about your reporting obligations under SB 1159.
