Sacramento, CA The California Public Health Service updated the COVID-19 testing guidance on Monday. Currently, fully vaccinated California residents say they do not need to be screened or tested for viruses in non-medical workplaces.
Some of the places CDPH states that screening and testing of unvaccinated employees should be considered:
- Workplaces at high risk of COVID-19 spread, such as public transport, restaurants, theaters, amusement parks, transportation hubs, and workplaces in high-infection areas.
- High-density workplaces, such as indoors, where physical distance is difficult and workers may be in close contact. This includes manufacturing or food processing plants, fishing boats, offshore oil platforms, farm worker housing, or wilderness firefighter camps.
- Staff in a collective living environment, such as homeless shelters and correctional facilities.
- Workplaces in high-risk business sectors of COVID-19, such as manufacturing, construction, retail and food services, have spread among workers.
The CDPH states that screening and testing of asymptomatic employees should continue in the medical setting, with some exceptions, regardless of vaccination status.
