Those with mild symptoms will be allowed to work while wearing KN95 masks. The CDC recommends waiting 7-10 days before returning to work.

Dignity Health workers who tested positive and have mild COVID-19 symptoms or no symptoms will be allowed to continue working, according to a memo sent to employees, the Associated Press reported.

System officials said this change was an enactment of the third tier of federal COVID-19 safety guidelines for health care workers in the face of sharply increasing cases in Arizona.
