    This document provides a summary of considerations and current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations regarding testing healthcare personnel (HCP) for SARS-CoV-2. This document does not apply to individuals who do not meet the definition of HCP as defined below. The CDC recommendations for SARS-CoV-2 testing have been developed based on what is currently known about COVID-19 and are subject to change as additional information becomes available.

    Testing of HCP can be considered in four situations:

    1. Testing HCP with signs or symptoms consistent with COVID-19

    2. Testing asymptomatic HCP with known or suspected exposure to SARS-CoV-2

    3. Testing asymptomatic HCP without known or suspected exposure to SARS-CoV-2 for early identification in special settings (e.g., nursing homes)

    4. Testing HCP who have been diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 infection to determine when they are no longer infectious
