Or. Admin. R. 333-019-0014 - Removal of Restrictions

(1) Worksite, child care, and school restrictions can be removed by statement of the local public health administrator that the disease is no longer communicable to others or that adequate precautions have been taken to minimize the risk of transmission.
(2) School or child care restrictions for chickenpox, scabies, staphylococcal skin infections, streptococcal infections, diarrhea, or vomiting may also be removed by a school nurse or health care provider.
(3) Restrictions at health care facilities for chickenpox, scabies, staphylococcal skin infections, streptococcal infections, diarrhea, or vomiting may also be removed by the facility's infection control committee when sufficient measures have been taken to prevent or minimize the transmission of disease, in accordance with written procedures approved by the committee.
(4) In general, restrictions on persons diagnosed with shigellosis or Shiga-toxigenic Escherichia coli (STEC) infection, including E. coli O157 infection, shall not be lifted until no pathogens are identified by a licensed laboratory in two consecutive approved fecal specimens collected not less than 24 hours apart. Such restrictions may be waived or modified at the discretion of the local public health administrator.
(5) Individuals infected with Salmonella enterica serotype Typhi (with or without symptoms), hereinafter referred to as "typhoid cases," must, before having a restriction removed, submit fecal specimens and one urine specimen to a licensed laboratory for testing on a schedule specified by the local public health administrator.
(6) A restriction on a typhoid case who is not a chronic carrier must be lifted by the local public health administrator when Salmonella enterica serotype Typhi is not identified by a licensed laboratory in any of four successive approved fecal specimens, collected at least 24 hours apart and not earlier than one month after illness onset, and one urine specimen.
(7) A "chronic carrier" is an individual who has fecal specimens test positive for Salmonella enterica serotype Typhi more than one year after onset or first diagnosis or on two occasions at least one year apart. A restriction on a chronic carrier may only be removed when Salmonella enterica serotype Typhi is not identified by a licensed laboratory in any of six successive approved fecal specimens, collected at least 72 hours apart, and one urine specimen.
