CDC Updates Isolation Guidelines

People who have been confirmed with mild to moderate COVID-19 can leave their isolation without receiving a negative test, according to recently revised guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Increasing evidence shows that most people are no longer infectious 10 days after they begin having symptoms of COVID-19. As a result, the CDC is discouraging people from getting tested a second time after they recover.
According to the CDC, for most persons with COVID-19 illness, isolation and precautions can generally be discontinued 10 days after symptom onset and resolution of fever for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing medications, and with improvement of other symptoms.
Note that it is still recommended that persons who have had direct contact (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) with an infected person quarantine for 14 days following the last contact.  
The CDC has come out with guidance documents and posters for use on the job or in the office. 
Contact Tracing Help

With the increase in employees exhibiting symptoms or testing positive, contact tracing has become a crucial step in combating the spread and maintaining productive jobsite operations. To make your efforts more efficient, consider taking the FREE Johns Hopkins Contract Tracing Course. 
Also, contractors have found great success in contact tracing with Triax Contact Tracing This system not only monitors social distancing, but gives a downloadable contact tracing report in the event of an exposure. This takes the guesswork out of determining who was within 6 feet of an infected person and for how long. As a result, there is little to no unnecessary loss of valuable employees due to 14 day quarantine.
