Shoud an employer require a doctor's note to return to work after having COVID-19 or having been in quarantine?

Here is the reply to this question by coronavirus.utah.gov

"No. Employers should not require a COVID-19 test result, a doctor’s note, or a note from the health department for employees who are sick to prove they are ill, qualify for sick leave, or to return to work. This places a burden on the healthcare and public health systems. 

Sometimes people will test positive after they are no longer infectious. It is not necessary for employees to have a negative COVID-19 test result after public health has told them they can end quarantine or isolation.

If an employee has been told by a public health worker that he or she can end isolation and is feeling well, there is no reason to stay home from work."
