Under the direction of the Wood County Health Department, we are continuing to conduct contact tracing as necessary.


Definitions:

· Quarantined - 14 days is the length of time that anyone who has been in direct contact with someone who tests positive for the COVID-19 virus must quarantine as symptoms can start anywhere from 2 -14 days after exposure. The quarantine period starts on the last day the person was known to have had contact with a person who tests positive. The quarantine may end after 14 days only if the individual was symptom-free the entire time.

· Isolated - Individuals with symptoms who: were screened and are at home, had a positive test or have a probable diagnosis.
