COVID-19 Guidance

  • Confirmed Case
    • A person who has received a positive result of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus as confirmed by a COVID-19 viral test or clinical diagnosis.
  • Infectious Period*. For the purpose of isolation and exclusion of confirmed cases, the “Infectious Period” is defined as:
    • For symptomatic confirmed cases, from the day of symptom onset until 24 hours have passed with no fever, without the use of fever-reducing medications, and symptoms are mild and improving.
    • For asymptomatic confirmed cases, there is no infectious period for the purpose of isolation or exclusion. If symptoms develop, the criteria above will apply.

* The potential infectious period is two days before symptoms began or the positive test date (if no symptoms) through 10 days after symptoms began or testing positive.

Recommendations for people who test positive:

  1. Stay home if you have COVID-19 symptoms, until you have not had a fever for 24 hours without using fever reducing medication and other COVID-19 symptoms are mild and improving.
    If you do not have symptoms, you should follow the recommendations below to reduce exposure to others.
  2. Mask when you are around other people indoors for the 10 days* after you become sick or test positive (if no symptoms). You may remove your mask sooner than 10 days if you have two sequential negative tests at least one day apart. Day 0 is symptom onset date or positive test date.
  3. Avoid contact with people at higher-risk for severe COVID-19 for 10 days*. Higher-risk individuals include the elderly, those who live in congregate care facilities, those who have immunocompromising conditions, and that put them at higher risk for serious illness.
  4. Seek Treatment. If you have symptoms, particularly if you are at higher risk for severe COVID-19, speak with a healthcare provider as soon as you test positive. You may be eligible for antiviral medicines or other treatments for COVID-19. COVID-19 antiviral medicines work best if taken as soon as possible, and within five to seven days from when symptoms start.

  • Call 1-833-422-4255 if you are unable to contact a healthcare provider or use the treatment options to find one.

*The potential infectious period is two days before the date of symptoms began or the positive test date (if no symptoms) through Day 10. (Day 0 is the symptom onset date or positive test date).
