EMPLOYERS: There is NO public health recommendation that employees who are ill must test negative for COVID-19 before returning to work or get a COVID-19 test in order to take sick leave. At this time, we recommend anyone with an illness to isolate at home for 10 days since onset of symptoms, 72 hours fever free (without the use of fever-reducing medication), and significant improvement in symptoms. JCDHE will not be providing letters for employees to clear them to return to work.
