Can employers require a negative COVID-19 test before you return to work? Depends on where you live - Dallas Business Journal

As Dallas County employers begin to plan to return to the office, many are navigating how to do so safely. Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins has released guidance for employers, which bars them for requiring employees to provide a negative COVID-19 prior to returning to work and instead recommends that employers rely on the symptom-based (non-test based) strategy. You can find more information on Judge Jenkins’ orders here: https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news/2020/06/30/require-negative-covid-test-work.html

Employers can't require negative tests in Dallas County, but Parkland Hospital is reporting seeing many people in line to get tested for COVID-19 for that reason.
