Previously, For HCP at UCI we we allowing a symptomatic HCP who had close contact to continue working unless contact was household. Now after 2 COVID vaccines and the required post 2nd vaccine time (1 week for Pfizer and 2 weeks for Moderna), and if the HCP is not immune compromised, that HCP can continue working after household contact.

Although the vaccine is 95% effective in limiting symptomatic disease,  it is not known to what extent it decreases the risk of asymptomatic disease or transmission.   For those reasons a fully vaccinated HCW who was a COVID contact should still be furloughed from work.  Is anyone doing anything different?
