Due to the increase in positive COVID-19 cases, we are a few days behind in calling individuals. We are continuing to call, but it might take a few days.
If you test positive for COVID-19, you need to go home, try to isolate yourself from others in the household (if possible), and treat the symptoms. If you have any medical concerns, please contact a healthcare provider, urgent care, or the hospital.
Current CDC guidelines state if you test positive, to stay home for 5 days after the start of symptoms (or from the day you tested positive if asymptomatic). Day 0 is the day your symptoms started or the day you tested positive if asymptomatic. After those 5 days, if your symptoms are resolving and you are fever free, you can leave but need to wear a well-fitting mask for an additional 5 days. If you cannot wear a well-fitting mask, stay home for a full 10 days.
If you are a close contact to someone who tests positive, below are guidelines to help you determine best practices to watch for symptoms and to avoid spreading illness to others.
With the drastic increase in cases, we suggest everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear a well-fitting mask, avoid large gatherings, stay home when sick except to seek medical care, and social distance when around others. Vaccination remains an important tool to help reduce severe illness and hospitalization due to COVID-19.
We are working hard and appreciate your patience. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 660-395-4711
