Mariska Hargitay has returned to the Law & Order: SVU set, two weeks after news broke that the actress had suffered a partially collapsed lung.
"She's back at work," her rep confirms. A rep for the production company also confirmed that Hargitay was on SVU's set as of Monday afternoon.
Hargitay's absence caused filming to cease last week, according to sources. Although she was nominated for both a Golden Globe and a SAG award for her role as Det. Olivia Benson, Hargitay was absent from both of those awards ceremonies this month.

Law & Order: SVU is back in production, but sources tell PEOPLE that the show's lead actress, Mariska Hargitay, who suffered a partially collapsed lung during the show's holiday hiatus, has not yet returned to work.
On Monday, the star's rep released a statement saying "Mariska Hargitay has been sidelined with a pneumothorax (a partially collapsed lung)," adding that in spite of her condition, the 44-year-old actress "will appear in all episodes for the rest of the season of Law & Order: SVU."
The rep has not said why Hargitay hasn't returned to the set, or given any indication how long her illness will keep her away.

With 10 seasons of Law & Order: SVU under her belt, Emmy-winning actress Mariska Hargitay says she'd consider leaving the hit show – for one very important reason.
"I just want to see my kid," the 44-year-old actress, who is mom to son August, 2, says in the January issue of Ladies' Home Journal.
Or maybe some maternity leave in the future would more appropriate. Hargitay says that she and husband Peter Hermann are "trying" to have another child and expand their family.
Despite her successful career and family life, Hargitay didn't always feel so confident. She thinks of herself as a late bloomer.

Move over, Miley Cyrus. Stars like Jennifer Hudson, Mariska Hargitay and Angie Harmon all stripped down for Allure's annual portfolio of naked stars. And Editor in Chief Linda Wells is dishing the dirt on the birthday-suit shoots.
"Stars do get surprisingly rattled," she told PEOPLE Wednesday night, during the magazine's Most Alluring Bodies silent auction in New York City. And even though they didn't all appear in Allure, nude portraits of Angelina Jolie, Gisele Bundchen, Kate Moss and Scarlett Johansson were donated by photographers to benefit Skin Cancer Research.
"We've had some of the most gorgeous people with the most gorgeous bodies really have a moment of crisis when they have to drop the robe," said Wells.
So have there been any major surprises during the nude photoshoots? "Some people haven't discovered the bikini wax," she said. "That was a shock. And that is a very expensive bikini wax when you're [forced to fake it] with a lot of retouching."
