A note here:

Some "recovered" individuals may shed viral RNA, but not infectious particles.

Nonetheless, caution would be warranted, especially if risks are high. As noted later in that thread, "Grandma" was discharged from a hospital into a nursing home, and may have inadvertently lead to the deaths of multiple patients. Although, in that case, she was never tested for COVID-19 until later.
