Download or view the Exclusion Guidance for High Risk Groups with Enteric Diseases in Tennessee.
The intent of creating exclusion guidance for high risk groups (i.e., food-handlers, childcare workers and attendees, and healthcare workers) with enteric illness is to provide a set of standardized guidance for exclusion, restriction, and reinstatement for the state of Tennessee. This guidance is meant to provide general guidelines for local and regional health departments. However, if other actions are warranted, health departments may deviate from this guidance where they deem necessary. This is intended to provide general consistency and a framework to our response to enteric diseases and their affected groups.
