For: 

I currently work in a healthcare setting. What is the criteria to return to work if I have confirmed or suspected COVID-19?

Before returning to work, please check with your facility’s protocol to determine if they have adapted specific guidelines based on the local circumstances.

The following is CDC guidance for the non-test-based-strategy to return to work:

  • at least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since recovery defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g. cough, shortness of breath); and
  • At least 72 days have passed since symptoms first appeared

What do I need to do if I have traveled or have plans to travel?

If you have recently traveled or plan to travel, please check CDC Travel Notices for international travel recommendations based on geographic risk assessment of country transmission level and possible restrictions. For cruise ship travel, check CDC cruise ship travelers for guidance. Though there are currently no federal advisories or restrictions for travel within the U.S., check your state or local governments for detailed information and additional guidance on travel issue orders.
