    IMPERIAL COUNTY — The county and Imperial Irrigation District have updated their procedures regarding workplace testing for COVID-19 to ensure that they do not discriminate against employees who have tested positive in the past and have recovered.

    Per guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health July 14, employers cannot require employees who have tested positive for COVID to provide negative test before they return to work. Instead, they should use symptom- or protocol-based criteria used in determining when an employee is safe to return to the workplace.
