If you test positive for COVID-19, please take personal responsibility and not wait for a public health official to contact you

Recent surges in the number of COVID-19 cases in our community have resulted in delays in completing case investigation. Follow-up by an investigator may take several days, and maybe a phone call or text survey. In the meantime, to best protect the health of others, these instructions must be followed by all COVID-19 cases.

  • If you receive a positive COVID-19 test result, isolate for a minimum of 10 days from the start of your symptom(s) or your positive test date if you didn’t have symptoms. If you are, or become, hospitalized during your isolation period, or have a pre-existing medical condition that compromises your immune system, you will need to be in isolation for a minimum of 20 days.

    You may discontinue home isolation after 10 days only if your symptoms have improved, you have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and you do not meet the criteria for a 20-day isolation period.
    While you are in isolation, the Ottawa County Department of Public Health
    may periodically contact you via phone or text message to assess your current health status.

    Isolation is defined as separating and restricting the movement of people who have been diagnosed with a contagious disease from those who are well. This measure is used to protect your health and the health of others. If you need to leave isolation to get medical care, please notify the medical facility before your arrival that you have been diagnosed with COVID-19. If you have medical, or other types of emergency, please notify 911 and first responders that you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 so that they can take appropriate precautions.

    If there are others in your household, they should self-quarantine at home immediately and continue for 14 days after you have completed isolation. If they develop even mild symptoms, they should consider getting tested for COVID-19.

  • Notify your close contacts that they may have been exposed and encourage them to get tested. If someone is awaiting test results, they must stay home until the results are in. A close contact is someone who has been within six feet (about two arms’ length) of an infected person for at least 15 minutes in 24 hours including brief encounters (it does not need to be consecutive minutes) with or without a face covering. Close contacts should quarantine—generally 14 days—since a person can be infectious before showing any symptoms.

    Identifying positive cases and contact tracing are proven methods to help slow the spread of an epidemic of respiratory disease, like COVID-19. Contact tracing helps public health workers find people who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and may be infected with the virus. Some people infected with COVID-19 can infect others, even when they are not showing symptoms of the disease. People who have been exposed to COVID-19 need to monitor themselves for symptoms, get tested and keep from exposing their friends, coworkers and families.

Isolation and quarantine mean staying home from work, school, gatherings, extracurricular activities and any other public place other than when seeking medical care.

Drive-thru Testing Sites

No-cost diagnostic testing is available for anyone with or without symptoms. Parental/ guardian consent is required for minors. No screening and no appointment are needed. Please bring a form of ID (e.g., state or country issued ID or paperwork with your name and address [bill, mail or paystub]). Please wear a face covering/mask.

COVID-19 testing is an important tool in helping to understand the scope of community-wide spread and making data-informed decisions on how to best protect the people of Ottawa County. If you have COVID-like symptoms and/or have been in close contact with someone infected with the new coronavirus please get tested and self-quarantine. Contact your primary care provider for any medical needs.
