If you are an employer, do you know what to do if one of your employees has symptoms of Covid or tests positive for Covid? Let us discuss the CDC’s recommendations for different scenarios, so you can help keep all of your employees safe and limit liability.
When can an employee return to work? An employee who has had Covid can return to work, when he or she has had no fever for more than seventy-two hours and has an improvement in respiratory symptoms. Also, it has been ten days since the onset of symptoms, he or she has had no fever for more than seventy-two hours, has improved symptoms, and has had two negative Covid tests performed twenty-four hours apart.
Following consistent guidelines can be a smart strategy for keeping your employees healthy and minimizing liability.
