No, that is not necessary. Only if it’s a positive COVID-19 test do you need to notify OHS. However, if you have a family member who is sick and you start feeling symptoms, please don’t assume it’s the flu. Please follow the protocol for COVID-19. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
If you are not working remotely and believe you may have been exposed to or come into contact with someone who has been exposed to COVID-19, please immediately contact OHS at 1-800-558-0039 and your supervisor.

On Monday, March 30, EP began monitoring the readiness of ERO minimum staff positions. Only minimum staff positions will receive weekly notifications at this time. For ACTUAL events, only minimum staff responders are required to report to their facilities. Augmented staff should reply to the Everbridge notification message if you are able to respond but DO NOT report to your facility. This is a change from the normal process. Once minimum staffing has been established, augmented responders may be called to report to their facility.
At each of our sites, the Work Control and Outage Management teams developed several contingency work schedules we might use if we were to see an uptick in employee call offs.
We fully value and appreciate the impact on-site sequestration would present to our employee’s lives. Should conditions progress to the point where on-site sequestration is required, employees will be compensated accordingly.

Employees do not need to badge in once every 30 days. Supervisors can conduct your behavioral observation program observations over Skype or the phone.
It has been up to each Site Vice President to decide when to initiate what we are calling the “Remote Work Protocol.” This means that employees who are deemed “remote-enabled” as notified by their Supervisors should be working from home. There is currently a group of site vice presidents working on a return to work strategy once the government has determined it is safe and state restrictions begin to be lifted.

For the Nuclear organization, we are defining non-essential airline travel as any travel that does not directly correlate to maintaining the health and safety of the public, supporting a refueling outage or ensuring the safe, reliable operation of a nuclear facility.
Examples of non-essential travel include team meetings, industry conferences, INPO benchmarking, internal plant assessments and company-sponsored training.
Hand sanitizer will be provided outside of all biometrics stations. Employees should use the sanitizer after using the biometrics station.
Security is also frequently disinfecting the biometrics stations.
Auditors are working from home with any requests for information (RFIs) to be provided electronically. We have postponed any field observations needed to complete the audit until a later, undetermined date. At this point we do not have any plans to have auditors travel to sites during the Remote Work Protocol. Audits will be remotely conducted as scheduled since auditors have access to multiple databases.
If OHS has instructed that quarantine is necessary as a result of your exposure, you must continue to respond to any contact from Occupational Health Services (OHS) within 24 hours and comply with OHS direction regarding status updates, travel or other mobility restrictions, medical testing, and submission of medical or other documentation requested from you or your health care provider before returning to work. You should not report to work until cleared by OHS.
No, a spouse is not a permissible childcare source. Crisis Care allows you to utilize care within your personal network, such as a neighbor, friend, family member (other than your spouse), or babysitter - someone who is not normally available to care for the child and does not live with the child.
Bright Horizons will reimburse you electronically through your bank, unless you prefer to have a check mailed to you. You’ll receive an email from Chase Payments within ten business days of submitting your Request for Reimbursement form. Please check your email spam or junk folder if you have not received it within ten business days.

While many programs have increased the use of remote training technology in recent months, it is not always possible to maintain training effectiveness or conduct hands-on activities remotely. When considering remote training, several factors are reviewed such as the size of the class, complexity of the topic, hands-on aspects of the training activity and any examination requirements. When required, remote-enabled employees will be asked to return to work locations to support completion of their training activities.
Yes, and site and Corporate EP Managers are implementing best practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 during required ERO training activities. Initial and continuing ERO training is essential for qualification and to maintain proficiency. Some portions of ERO training will be performed remotely where practical.
Vendor-led training is being minimized in order to reduce additional personnel on site. When vendor training is required to support core worker qualifications, the training will be evaluated for conduct on a case-by-case basis. Non-essential travel and entertainment, including travel for professional seminars and INPO courses, have been suspended through the end of the year.
Based on current travel and group size restrictions, some in-person enrichment type training has been postponed, such as the Supervisory Development Program (SDP) and the Exelon Leadership Academy (ELA). These types of training are designed around group interactions, teambuilding, and typically require travel to a common location. Exelon Training, along with Talent Management, are evaluating new dates and locations where these programs can be resumed safely while complying with restrictions. Corporate and site leadership training are still available through other methods (such as computer-based training).
The 2020 Fleet ANSI 3.1 SRO certification course is currently on track to start the week of June 15 with the use of distance learning technology during the classroom phase of the course. The simulator phase of the course scheduled for late summer will continue while observing small simulator group sizes and requirements for social distancing and personal protective equipment (PPE).
