That's similar to what food employees have to do for specific illnesses. If they're diagnosed, they have to get a note from a doctor stating they're clear to work. What any specific doctor does to decide you're in the clear likely varies. However, the docs are usually working with local health departments and health inspectors tend to follow the letter of the law.

Cut me some slack, it was a hypothetical. Besides, as far as I know, we don't even have the resources in place to test everyone once.
