DOH & CDC Isolation Guidelines

CDC Quarantine GUIDELINES
As recommended by PA Department of Health, Centers of Disease Control and World Health Organization those who tested positive for COVID-19 should NOT be retested within 90 days. Experts note that “Since the PCR test is detecting nucleic acid of COVID-19, a positive test after the 10-day isolation is likely detecting nucleic acid of dead virus”

  1. Contacts are individuals who have been within 6 feet of a positive case for a cumulative total of 15 minutes within a 24-hour period).
  2. The contact tracer obtains a list of their contacts – the people they have been in close contact with in the 48 hours prior to the presentation of symptoms or a positive test result until the present.
  3. Each contact is notified that they have been listed as a close contact by someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and that they should quarantine for 5 days per CDC regulations and protocol. The COVID Coordinator works to facilitate a safe isolation or quarantine environment, arranging quarantine/isolation housing and no contact meal delivery as needed.
  4. Positive cases and contacts are provided with proper guidelines and description of services.
