Update - CDC Guidelines

On December 2, 2020, the CDC released additional quarantine options. While local public health authorities make the final decisions about how long quarantine should last based on local conditions and needs, the CDC now recommends two (2) additional options for how long quarantine should last:

Based on local availability of viral testing, for people without symptoms quarantine can end either:

  • on day ten (10) without testing; or
  • on day seven (7) after receiving a negative test result.

At this time, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment has not updated its quarantine guidelines to match the new CDC recommendations.

The CDC continues to endorse quarantine for fourteen (14) days and recognizes that any quarantine shorter than fourteen (14) days balances reduced burden against a small possibility of spreading the virus. CDC will continue to evaluate new information and update recommendations as needed.

"HR Partners has helped us with those 'I’ll get around to it' things such as an employee handbook and updating employee files.  The most important benefit is they are a phone call away from peace of mind on all things HR.

It is a challenge for any employer to keep up on changes to personnel practices and requirements.  The suite of services HR Partners can provide is comprehensive and affordable.  The question should be, can you afford not to engage them as part of your employee relations program?"
