Hi Deanna,
The California OSHA Aerosol Transmissible Disease Standard (ATD) has good language for presumed / known exposure reporting, assessment and medical/precautionary isolation.  You can review it in this recent CalOSHA guide.  The ATD standard is mandatory only in California and currently applies to coronavirus exposures in healthcare and related workplaces.  Outside Caifornia, the ATD standard is a good model - it was based on CDC infection control guidance adopted for an occupational health approach.
