The Centers for Disease Control has updated its recommended time required for workers to return to work after the onset of symptoms of a COVID-19 infection. The time period has changed from 7 days to 10 days.
As a result, the Georgia Department of Public Health has updated their COVID-19 GUIDANCE FOR RESTAURANTS WITH DINING ROOM SEATING to reflect this change. Now it states that “An employee with known or suspected COVID-19 must follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to self-isolate for at least ten (10) days after symptom onset and end isolation only after symptoms have improved and the employee has been fever-free and/or symptom-free for three (3) consecutive days without medication before returning to work.”
Please replace the previous guidance document with this updated version.
