If you have been in contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19, it is important that you begin self-quarantining immediately. You may receive a call from the health department to assist you in accessing testing and support while quarantining. You should stay home for 14 days since your last exposure to the person who has tested positive and monitor yourself for symptoms throughout this time. Symptoms can appear 2-14 days after initial exposure, but you could also experience COVID-19 with no symptoms at all. For this reason, it is essential that you complete a 14 day quarantine even if you feel well and test negative. Avoid leaving the home except for medical care. If you do need to leave, be sure to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
