Dear Community Partner/Employer/Business Owner,
Due to overwhelming caseloads, the Lenawee County Health Department will no longer provide documentation clearing individuals from COVID-19 related quarantine and isolation. You can determine when your employees are safely able to return to work by the following guidance:
When to end quarantine:
When to end isolation:
A negative COVID-19 test SHOULD NOT BE REQUIRED for an employee to return to work. Requiring a negative test places an undue burden on testing resources and someone may test positive for COVID-19 for several weeks after illness. In general, people aren’t able to infect others past 10 days from when their symptoms started. Exceptions to this include those who are hospitalized or immunocompromised and require a longer isolation period. See https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/duration-isolation.html for further discussion and references.
More information is available at www.lenaweehealthdepartment.org. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Contact us at 517-264-5226, option 5 or email email@example.com with any questions.
