COVID-19: Guidance for Those Testing Positive or Exposed

IMPORTANT – Due to the widespread incidence of COVID-19 disease the local health department will no longer be contacting everyone who tests positive for COVID-19. We will be providing guidance and education for those living in congregate settings and for outbreaks in high risk populations. If you test positive for COVID-19, you will not receive a call from the health department.

If you need proof of your positive test result for your employer, school etc.; please obtain a copy from the test provider.

If you have tested positive or have been a contact of someone who has tested positive, please follow the guidance in the links below.

Please notify anyone you may have been in contact with so they can begin quarantine.
