The changes include details about when employees should return to work after being out due to illness during the pandemic. The guidance now states that “[s]ick employees should follow CDC-recommended steps . . . [and] [e]mployees should not return to work until the criteria to discontinue home isolation are met, in consultation with healthcare providers and state and local health departments.”
