CDC Issues Updated Guidance on Asymptomatic COVID-19 Testing

In updated CDC guidance, the new guidance states that “if you have been in close contact, such as within 6 feet of a person with documented COVID-19 infection for at least 15 minutes and do not have symptoms, you need a test.”  With the guidance, the CDC says that even a single negative does not mean you will remain negative at any point after the test, and also recommend 14 days of self-isolation if you have a negative test.

 With this guidance, we encourage employers to reach out to our team of attorneys for our advice on best practices.  To do so, please open a ticket in our newly re-designed Ask an Attorney Portal.
