What to do if you test positive for covid-19

So you tested POSITIVE for COVID-19? 

Step 1. Begin to self-isolate right away. This means separating from everyone – use your own bed and bathroom when possible, wearing a mask inside if you have to share common spaces, wiping down surfaces with a disinfectant frequently and attempting to keep distances significantly greater than 6 feet at all times. Isolation is a vital step in keeping sick people away from healthy people to stop the virus from spreading. Please stay at home, on your property, except if you need to receive medical care. However, most people with COVID-19 are able to recover at home. 

Step 2. A worker with the Teton County Health Department’s Isolate and Trace Team will be calling you in 24-48 hours to help you figure out ‘next steps’. They will conduct an interview to understand your situation, answer questions, provide education, identify and anticipate needs and evaluate who you may have been in close contact with (and may be at risk for becoming sick) while you were infectious. It is important that you talk with them or call them back if they leave a message.
