CDC Updates Guidance for Managing Healthcare Personnel with SARS-CoV-2 Infection/Exposure

On September 23, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) updated its “Interim Guidance for Managing Healthcare Personnel with SARS-CoV-2 Infection or Exposure to SARS-CoV-2” recommendations.

Two key updates are listed:

  • In most circumstances, asymptomatic HCP with higher-risk exposures do not require work restriction.
  • Updated recommendations for testing frequency to detect potential for variants with shorter incubation periods and to address the risk for false negative antigen tests in people without symptoms.

A key point stated in the guidance is: “In general, asymptomatic HCP who have had a higher-risk exposure do not require work restriction, regardless of vaccination status, if they do not develop symptoms or test positive for SARS-CoV-2.”
