The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new guidelines for essential workers who have been exposed to the coronavirus, saying individuals would need to be asymptomatic to return to work. The guidelines are aimed at keeping essential workers at work – even if they might have been exposed to someone who has coronavirus.

The CDC’s new guidelines also outline steps employers should take, including checking temperatures before employees start work, sending anyone who becomes sick home and cleaning commonly touched surfaces more frequently, among others.
