EMPLOYERS: There is NO public health recommendation that employees who are ill must test negative for COVID-19 before returning to work or get a COVID-19 test in order to take sick leave. Anyone who is positive for COVID-19 should isolate at home for 10 days since onset of symptoms, 24 hours fever-free (without the use of fever-reducing medication), and significant improvement in symptoms. 

HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS: Immediately notify infection control at your health care facility and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) at (877) 427-7317 if you have a person under investigation for COVID-19. Healthcare providers can collect specimen samples at their office for COVID-19 testing. The Kansas Department of Health and Environmental Laboratories (KHEL) in Topeka, Kansas and private labs are conducting testing for COVID-19. 

PLASMA DONATIONS: The Community Blood Center (CBC) is collecting convalescent plasma donations from those who have recovered from COVID-19. CBC will collect, process the plasma for infusion, and maintain a bank for hospitals to treat patients with serious or immediately life-threatening COVID-19 infections.
