  • COVID-19 Case Expand dropdown
     A COVID-19 case is an individual who is positive for COVID-19.
  • Close contact Expand dropdown
     A close contact is someone who has been within 6 feet of a person who is infected with COVID-19 for 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period (for example, three individual 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes).
  • Case Investigation Expand dropdown
    A case investigation is a thorough interview of an individual who is positive for COVID-19. It includes details about their symptoms, vaccination status, recent travel, exposures to COVID -19, relevant past medical history, and an evaluation of possible contacts dating back to 48 hours before the onset of symptoms.
  • Contact Tracing Expand dropdown

    Contact Tracing is the process of contacting and interviewing individuals who may have been in close contact with someone who is positive for COVID-19. The purpose of the interview is to inform the individual that they may have been in close contact, to make decisions about quarantine and self-monitoring, and to provide support and resources. 

  • Self-Monitor Expand dropdown

    Self-Monitor is recommended when someone who is fully vaccinated has been within 6 feet of a person who is infected with COVID-19 for 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period (for example, three individual 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes). Persons who are told to self-monitor should report any symptoms they have and need to get a COVID-19 test.

  • Quarantine Expand dropdown
    • Quarantine is a means to separate persons or groups who are believed to have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. This process helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 
  • Isolation Expand dropdown
    • Isolation is a means to separate persons or groups who have or are reasonably believed to be infected with COVID-19. This process helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 
  • Exposure Expand dropdown
    An exposure happens when someone is in close contact to someone infected with COVID-19.
  • Incubation period Expand dropdown
    • The incubation period is the period-of-time from exposure to when someone begins to have symptoms. For COVID-19, the incubation period is 2-14 days. Persons exposed to someone with COVID-19 may become positive at anytime between days 2 and 14 after exposure.
