IF an employee is asked to return home due to a positive response to the screening questions or a documented fever, employers should comply with the provisions of reporting time pay.
IF an employee reports symptoms or COVID-19 diagnosis:
Employers must make COVID-19 testing available to all employees who are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or who had "close contact" exposure to a COVID-19 case at the workplace. The testing must be made available at no cost and during employees’ paid time.
Employers may not require a negative COVID-19 test as a condition for an employee returning to work if the employee has satisfied the return-to-work requirements.
