Staff are working through cases as quickly as they can; however, as case counts rise, there may be more delay in our office contacting you. During these delays please do the following until you hear from staff:
If you are told you have tested positive, isolate yourself and do not be in contact with anyone else if at all possible.
If you have been told that you are a close contact or believe that you have been in close contact with someone who has had COVID-19, quarantine at home and watch for symptoms.
A close contact is defined as being within six feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period of time starting two days before the start of symptoms until the case is isolated.
Coronavirus is spreading quickly quickly in our community. We are all growing weary from safety practices, but now it is more important than ever to take caution in your actions.
Keep travel and activities to only those that are necessary, and wash your hands, watch your distance and wear a mask.
