BL Covid-19 Updates

Updated guidelines for isolation and quarantine based on newly released guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Isolation: Isolation is for individuals infected with COVID-19.

 • When counting days, Day zero (0) is the day your symptoms first started (or the day you were tested if you have no symptoms). Day one (1) is the first full day after your symptoms started.

• People with COVID-19 should isolate for five (5) days and if they are asymptomatic or symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours), follow that by five (5) days of wearing a mask when around others and avoid being around others likely to get seriously ill from COVID-19.

Quarantine: Quarantine is no longer recommended for individuals exposed to COVID-19.

• If you are exposed to COVID-19, wear a high-quality mask for ten (10) days and test yourself after day five (5).

 • If individuals develop symptoms, they should get tested immediately and isolate until they receive their test results. If they test positive, follow the above isolation recommendations.
