What should I do if I or someone I live with test positive test for COVID?

Should you or someone you live with test positive for COVID, please follow CDC guidelines for instructions regarding when to quarantine.

Should someone you live with test positive for COVID, current CDC guidelines state: “Quarantine if you have been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has COVID-19, unless you have been fully vaccinated. People who are fully vaccinated do NOT need to quarantine after contact with someone who had COVID-19 unless they have symptoms. However, fully vaccinated people should get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even if they don’t have symptoms and wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until their test result is negative.”

Should you test positive for COVID, current CDC guidelines state that you should quarantine and self-isolate for 10 days since symptoms first appeared. Additionally, please alert the individuals below based upon your location to inform them of your situation so we can provide appropriate contact tracing as required by state and local governments. Your privacy will be maintained as much as regulations permit.
