The Southern Nevada Health District is now changing it guidance on COVID-19 testing. The district now says people who have tested positive for COVID-19 should not be retested to see if they are now negative. The new guidance comes as more businesses are requiring employees who test positive, to have a negative test before they are allowed to retuirn to work. the SNHD says the states testing system has become overwhelmed. The new SNHD guidance says those who had symptoms of COVID-19 can discontinue self-isolation after at least 10 days have passed since the symptoms began, at least 24 hours since breaking a fever without taking fever-reducing medication, and as long as there has been improvement in other symptoms.
