The CDC has now extended isolation for employees suspected to have COVID-19.
Employees who experience symptoms associated with COVID-19, but have not been tested may return to work when they have met the following criteria:
- Fever free for at least 72 hours (without the use of medication that reduces fever)
- Respiratory symptoms have improved
- At least 10 days have passed since their symptoms first appeared
Keep in mind, all three elements of the criteria must be met.
