Recently answered questions

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.

Where can I get tested for COVID-19?

Testing locations and availability vary across the country. Decisions about testing are at the discretion of state and local health departments. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and want to get tested, call your medical provider first. If you are currently on assignment, check with the facility you are assigned to and identify if they offer testing. If they do not offer testing, ask the facility for guidance on recommended nearby community testing locations. If you have exhausted those options, you can also coordinate testing through public health laboratories, or work with clinical or commercial laboratories.
