Reintegrating Exposed Critical Infrastructure Workers


The language around allowing essential workers to work after an exposure was updated and has been made much stricter.

Clarified that reintegrating exposed critical infrastructure workers who are not experiencing any symptoms and have not tested positive back into onsite operations should be used as a last resort and only in limited circumstances, such as when cessation of operation of a facility may cause serious harm or danger to public health or safety.
Added that employers are encouraged to work with state, tribal, local, and territorial (STLT) public health officials to determine the safest way to reintegrate exposed workers who are not experiencing any symptoms and have not tested positive back into onsite operations.

This exception should only be invoked if there are no other options. It confers substantial risk to others in the workplace.
