COVID-19 Reporting Guidelines
If you have tested positive for COVID-19, have been exposed to a COVID-19 positive person or are experiencing possible symptoms, please follow these HSC protocols and procedures, which are based on the current CDC guidelines:
UPDATE DUE TO AVAILABILITY OF VACCINATIONS: It takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines that require 2 shots may not protect you until a week or two after your second shot. It’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work in real-world conditions. Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others, stay at least 6 feet away from others, avoid crowds, and wash your hands often. As we get more information on changes in quarantine advice post vaccination, we will adjust protocol accordingly.
