Close contact is defined as follows:

  • You were within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more

  • You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19

  • You had direct physical contact with the person (hugged or kissed them)

IT IS EACH MEMBER'S RESPONSIBILITY - to report your suspected condition to the

The Centers for Disease Control has established guidelines for when it is appropriate to be around others after having a positive COVID-19 diagnosis or suspected exposure.

You can be around others after:

  • 10 days since symptoms first appeared and

  • 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and

  • Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving*

Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation​
