COVID-19 Updates


Updated Guidelines

In accordance with CDC guidelines, effective July 21, 2021

What should I do if I am FULLY VACCINATED and have close contact* with a Covid 19 infected person?

No requirement to quarantine after close contact unless you develop symptoms

Be tested 3-5 days after last close contact, even if you don't have symptoms

Wear a mask indoors, when in public, for 14 days following close contact or until you receive a negative test result

*Close Contact = Being within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period.

Note: Living within the same residence should generally be considered 'close contact', as all residents ultimately breath the same air.
