COVID-19 Return-To-Work Program

CityMD Can Help You Restart and Maintain A Healthy Workplace

 

To mitigate the risk of a recurring outbreak of COVID-19 infections as people return to work, CityMD is offering a corporate return-to-work evaluation for employees.

 

Please note that in order to send employees in for this testing, you must have a CityMD Occupational Medicine employer account. 

 

 

Through This Program, Employers Can Pick From Two Forms Of Clearance:

 

1. Non-test-based clearance:

Physical evaluation and clearance note if employee meets the following CDC criteria to return to work after a COVID-19 infection:

- At least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since recovery defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and,

- At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared or, for asymptomatic patients with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19, since the date of their first positive COVID-19 diagnostic test

 

2. Test-based clearance:

Employee must meet the same criteria as non-test-based clearance with additional requirement of an FDA EUA COVID-19 molecular assay for detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA as follows:

- PCR Nasal Swab Test, which identifies the virus in sample from the respiratory system, returns negative results (minimum 7 day turnaround)

- For healthcare workers, two negative results of a COVID-19 PCR Nasal Swab Test (“two-step”) are collected at least 24 hours apart 

 

Additional testing:

- IgG Antibody Serology Test, which indicates whether the patient most likely has been exposed to the virus and developed antibodies, can also be ordered (minimum 7 day turnaround)
