***Resolved: Based on the time-based approach that is supported by laboratory and epidemiologic studies, which indicate that cases stop being infectious after a certain period of time. For those with mild to moderate illness, this period is 10 days from symptom onset (or specimen collection date in asymptomatic cases). For those with severe illness (for example, requiring ICU level of care), the period is 20 days.

Once the appropriate period of time has passed, isolation is discontinued for client cases and staff can return to work once they have been symptom free for 24 hours.
