Does anyone know why this covid policy exists? Anyone in nursing/medicine?

If a healthcare workers relative (living in the same household) has covid symptoms then tests positive, the healthcare worker has to isolate for 2 weeks, they can then return to work. They don’t need a test.

Its great that they are back in work but could they not be infectious when they return to work through either of the following ways:

- They caught covid from their relative on day 12 of their isolation and are not yet showing symptoms

- They caught covid near the start of their isolation and have no symptoms due to a long incubation period

So I’m wondering why a test is not required before they return, trust policies just state to isolate for 2 weeks.

Forgot to add, another way they could be infectious surely is if other members of their household develops covid say half way through their isolation period...

I’m just trying to understand

You have already made a thread similar to this. The rules for HNS workers are in line with the rules for the rest of the population.
