Instructions for Self Isolation for those being screened for Covid 19
Self- isolate and do not return to work or school until you receive your results. You will receive a secure message or phone call with your results usually on the same day, however, it may take 3-5 days.
If your results are positive OR you develop symptoms for COVID-19 you must self-isolate for 10 days after symptom onset and you must be symptom free for at least 24 hours. If you are positive and never develop symptoms, self-isolation can end 10 days after your positive test result.
If your results are negative you most likely do not have COVID-19 at this time. If you have symptoms, you should continue to self-isolate until 24 hours symptom free or receive further instructions from your medical provider.
Do not allow anyone other than those living with you into your home until the isolation period is complete
In the event that you must leave your home for any reason, utilize a face mask at all times.
Monitor your symptoms. If you develop symptoms contact the Health Center by calling 254-710-4939. If you experience shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or any other emergent symptoms call 911 or go to the nearest ER.
For persons previously diagnosed with symptoms of Covid -19
If you no longer have symptoms after your recovery, retesting is not recommended within 3 months after the date of onset for the initial Covid-19 infection. In addition quarantine is not recommended in the event of close contact with an infected person.
