A note on quarantine.....

If you are swabbed for COVID, quarantine until you get your results.

COVID Positive patients: Quarantine 10 days from the start of your symptoms. So, if your symptoms start today, you quarantine from 8/12-8/22, back in public on 8/23. If you do not have symptoms, quarantine 10 days from your test date.

COVID Contacts: quarantine 14 days from the last direct exposure to a positive case. We utilize a universal 14-day quarantine for all residents.

If you are fully vaccinated, you are not required to quarantine if you are in direct contact with a positive case. However, you should wear a mask, social distance, and get tested if you develop symptoms.

Every case is different. Please call our office at 304-472-2810 with questions, and we will get you the right information. Thank you.
