I’m a Close Contact of a Positive Case

The rapid spread of COVID-19 through our community means that we’re all at risk for exposure. If you think you’ve had close contact (with someone for more than 15 minutes less than 6’ apart from one another), use the following guidelines to keep your friends and family safe. If you develop symptoms at any point, get tested at our Spruce Street location Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Exposure: If you’ve been exposed to a positive case, you may need to quarantine.

*Vaccination status does not matter

  • No quarantine. You do not need to stay home unless you develop symptoms.
  • Watch for symptoms for 10 full days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19.
  • Take precautions for 10 full days.
  • Wear a well-fitted mask for 10 full days any time you are around others inside your home or in public. Do not go to places where you are unable to wear a mask. After 10 full days on day 11 you may resume all normal activities unless you still have symptoms. See a medical provider.
  • Even if you don’t develop symptoms, get tested at least 5 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19.
  • If you develop symptoms, isolate immediately and get tested. Continue to stay home until you know the results. Wear a well-fitted mask around others.
  • Avoid travel.
  • Avoid being around people who are at high risk.
