This guidance adds an additional step to help clear patients with persistent PCR positive tests (and other considerations).
This guidance applies to all persons returning to work and/or seeking clearance from isolation requirements, including healthcare professionals and residents returning to confined population environments (i.e. long term care facilities, behavioral health hospitals, prisons, etc.).
