Chesprocott Health District Positive COVID-19 Cases
Those who had an exposure to a person with known or suspected COVID‐19 should self‐quarantine at home for 14 days after the last exposure, stay at least 6 feet away from others, avoid contact with people at higher risk for severe illness, and self‐monitor for symptoms. The 14‐day period for quarantine reflects the 14‐day maximum incubation period for COVID‐19.
If symptoms develop during the 14‐day quarantine, the individual should follow home isolation guidance for cases and seek medical care and testing.
A person who tests negative during their 14‐day quarantine period should continue to self‐quarantine until the end of their 14‐day quarantine period.
If an individual does not develop symptoms during the 14‐day quarantine period, then they may be released from self-quarantine.
Use of Cloth Face Coverings to Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19
Your cloth face covering should:
✔️ Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils
✔️ Fit snugly against the sides of the face
✔️ Be made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through
✔️ Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damaging the material or shape
Do not buy surgical masks to use as a face covering. Those are intended for healthcare workers and first responders. Many items you may already have in your home can be used to create face coverings.
Try creating a cloth face covering using bandanas, ski masks, washable napkins, or dish towels.
- Practice social distancing by putting space between yourself and others. Continue to practice healthy habits to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
- Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds
- Clean and then disinfect frequently used surfaces
- Stay home if you’re sick
- Avoid touching your face
