Our Local Public Health Officials Need Your Help

If you test positive for COVID-19:
•Isolate immediately. Stay home except to get medical care and minimize contact with everyone in your household.
•Notify close contacts. Quickly notify anyone who has spent more than 15 minutes (cumulative) within six feet of you over a 24-hour period so they quarantine immediately.
•Seek care if needed. Stay in touch with your doctor and seek care if you have any emergency warning signs or you think it’s an emergency.
•Answer the call. If you receive a phone call from a contract tracer, please answer the call and return their message. Many different entities are assisting with contact tracing so there is no Caller ID.

If you are a close contact:
•Quarantine immediately and for the full 14 days. Get test around day 7 of your quarantine, even if you don’t have symptoms. If the test is negative, STAY in quarantine. If the test is positive, isolate for 10 days and notify your close contacts
