Coronavirus Disease 2019
If you test positive for COVID-19, there is a significant risk you could pass the disease to others. To prevent the spread of this virus to others and protect the health of the public, you must isolate immediately.
ISOLATION means that you MUST:
1. Remain at your current residence at all times until your advised isolation period ends (see below),
2. Have no contact with anyone outside of your residence and only absolutely necessary contact with those you live with,
3. Not have anyone enter your home without having a special written permit from a health official, with the exception of law enforcement and emergency responders. Be sure to let them know you are on isolation for COVID-19 before they enter your home, and
4. Have everyone you live with quarantine immediately and not go to school or work for 14 days from their last contact with you.
Please follow the recommendations in this flyer: Next Steps: After you are diagnosed with COVID-19. Following these suggestions will help you prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others in your household.
DURATION OF ISOLATION:
You should isolate until you meet ALL of the following criteria:
- It’s been at least 10 days since your symptoms started (or since your test date if you never had symptoms)
- You have been symptom-free for 24 hours or have seen great improvement in your symptoms
- You have been fever-free for at least 24 hours without taking any fever-reducing medications (i.e aspirin, ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc.)
