UPDATES

Return to Work: From Chapter 46.8.F

Health Services will advise on the approval for LBNL workers to return to work after being excluded due to being a COVID-19 case or having close contact with a COVID-19 case. The following conditions will inform that determination, but additional factors related to local or state public health orders or to critical staffing shortages may apply.

  1. COVID-19 Cases
    Return to work criteria depends on whether or not the COVID-19 case has symptoms. In either situation, a negative COVID-19 test is not required to return to work.

COVID-19 cases with COVID-19 symptoms shall not return to work until all three of the following conditions are met:

  1. At least 24 hours have passed since a fever of 100.4 or higher has resolved without the use of fever-reducing medications; and

  2. COVID-19 symptoms have improved; and

  3. At least 10 days have passed since COVID-19 symptoms first appeared.

COVID-19 cases who tested positive, but never developed symptoms, shall not return to work until at least 10 days have passed since the date that the first positive COVID-19 test was collected. A negative COVID-19 test is not required to return to work.

We want to hear from you.
