Updated Quarantine Guidance from the KDHE and the CDC

Due to the rise of COVID-19 cases, both the CDC and the KDHE have implemented new quarantine guidance.

You will notice that quarantine has reverted back to 14 days, rather than 10 days, with 72 hours symptom free. The 10 days, 72 hours symptom free standard now only applies to lab confirmed cases and those who develop symptoms during quarantine.

Additionally, the KDHE has clarified that if an individual develops symptoms while in quarantine, and tests negative, the individual is still required to finish quarantine. A negative test result will not allow the individual to end quarantine early.

"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?"
