CDC Guidelines:

Stay home except to get medical care

  • Monitor your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), seek emergency medical care immediately.
  • Stay in a separate room from other household members, if possible.
  • Use a separate bathroom, if possible.
  • Avoid contact with other members of the household and pets.
  • Don’t share personal household items, like cups, towels, and utensils.
  • Wear a mask when around other people, if you are able to.

For those who feel they have had a high risk of exposure to COVID-19 and are not showing symptoms, they ask to self-quarantine for 14 days past last exposure, practice social distancing, avoid high risk individuals, and monitor yourself for symptoms of COVID-19.

If symptoms do arise, contact our local testing facilities to get tested.
