Below is an excerpt:

Attorneys Otto Immel and Brenna Wildt of the Quarles & Brady law firm suggest that other employers take heed of the CDC guidelines. “Although these guidelines are designed to support the continuity of functions critical to public health, safety and economic security during the COVID-19 pandemic, employers who do not operate within critical infrastructure can also follow this CDC guidance in having asymptomatic employees continue reporting to work,” they explain.

However, Immel and Wildt remind both employers of critical workers and non-critical workers who are covered by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) that those who are unable to work due to potential COVID-19 exposure may be eligible for paid sick leave under the FFCRA.
