When you discover someone you've treated or who visited your facility has been showing symptoms of (or tested positive for) COVID-19, there are a few steps that need to be taken. Not only should the infected person quarantine for two weeks, they need to test negative for COVID-19 before returning to practice.
In addition, the CDC offers recommendations for cleaning and disinfecting your facility if someone is sick, including closing off areas used by the person who was sick—you don't necessarily need to shut down all operations.
