3. If you test for Covid-19, please quarantine yourself until you receive your test results, whether you do or don't have symptoms.
4. If your Covid test results are positive, the Health Department will try to reach out to you. This is proving to be an extremely overwhelming task. You may not hear from us until late in your isolation period. As soon as you receive your results, start your isolation period of 10 days. We need you to contact the family members, friends and work members that you may have exposed. Those contacts need to quarantine themselves for 14 days from the day they were exposed to you. Please be diligent in following these instructions so YOU can help US decrease the spread of this virus.
