The CDC has released communications around COVID-19 symptoms that help workers know when to stay home and when it is safe to be around others.
Employers can use this information to help meet OSHA training requirements by sharing it with employees regarding these COVID–19 symptoms.
The release can be found here. A short summary of the information is provided below.

If you know or think you had symptoms, you can be with others after:

  • 3 days with no fever and
  • Symptoms improved and
  • 10 days since symptoms first appeared

Depending on your healthcare provider’s advice:

  • If you will be tested, you can be around others when you have no fever, symptoms have improved and you receive two negative test results in a row, at least 24 hours apart.
  • If you tested positive but have no symptoms, you can be with others after 10 days have passed.
  • People with conditions that weaken their immune system might need to stay home longer than 10 days.
  • If you have been around someone who has COVID – 19, you should stay home for 14 days after exposure.
