COVID 19 Health and Safety

Vaccine Information

 

     


COVID-19 Testing and Next Steps for a Positive Test
 
 
Stay home if you are sick with any symptoms. Maintain social distancing, wear masks and wash hands frequently.  If a known exposure has happened (less than six feet for more than 15 minutes during the course of a day), stay home for 14 days from the last contact.  Testing is recommended if symptoms develop.  Testing too soon will not give an accurate result and does not change the isolation period
