I'm not talking about water contamination. If an employee gets covid-19 and reports to work before symptomatic, comes in contact with co-workers, then falls ill, it is reasonable to think that all employees who had contact with that person may be put in isolation until it's determined that they are or are not healthy. At the very least, the plant would likely be closed for a day or two so it can be cleaned/disinfected. A high school in Bothell WA was closed for a day this week for cleaning because an employee has a relative with covid-19 so the scenario isn't beyond reason.That if someone in a water department gets Covid-19 the entire plant may be shut down? That doesn't sound correct. This is a virus that is spread person to person, not through water or indirect contact.
