The short answer is yes. While not all employers will ask you to provide documentation of a negative test result, “employers may take steps to determine if employees entering the workplace have COVID-19 because an individual with the virus will pose a direct threat to the health of others” (Source: U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission).
