COVID Testing After a Positive Test
KBA-01679-R0M5T9
Question
If someone has tested positive for COVID-19 within the prior 90 days, are they subject to mandatory COVID-19 testing during that period?
Answer

Because individuals can test positive, persistently or intermittently, following a recent COVID-19 infection, the CDC recommends asymptomatic individuals be excluded from routine screening for a period of 90 days after initially testing positive by PCR test. Anyone with proof of a positive PCR test that occurred within the prior 90 days does not need to undergo mandatory weekly COVID-19 testing during the 90-day period beginning with the date of their initial positive PCR test.
