MM Employee COVID-19 Testing and Returning to Work

You must have an active MyUofMHealth account to complete this workflow.

Healthcare workers may return to work on day 6 after a positive COVID-19 test if all of the following criteria are met:

  1. No fever for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications
  2. Asymptomatic or symptoms improving (e.g. shortness of breath resolved, cough resolved or minimal) 
  3. Negative COVID-19 antigen test collected on day 5  

Healthcare workers with a positive antigen test at day 5 should retest at day 7 and if test is negative may return to work at day 8.

Healthcare workers with a positive test at day 7 should remain off work for 10 days. 

Healthcare workers who have ongoing symptoms and are unable to return to work should follow the guidance they receive from Occupational Health Services (OHS).
