CDNA and PHLN have revised their advice on the release from isolation of persons who have had COVID-19.
CDNA and PHLN have agreed that people who:
- are eligible for release from isolation, based on the clinical criteria, do not pose a risk of onward infection
- have recovered from COVID-19 are no longer required to meet additional laboratory testing criteria prior to going into high-risk settings.
But significantly immunocompromised people require negative PCR tests following COVID-19 illness before they are released from isolation.
