Isolation Requirements

PA Department of Health Quarantine/Isolation

If someone is Positive
You are immediately required to isolate for 10 days beginning the day of the onset of symptoms OR the day of your COVID-19 test. (No one should be physically present if they are symptomatic)
If, on day 10 of a positive result, you are no longer symptomatic, and you have been fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication, you are cleared to return to work the following day, or day 11.
With the assistance of the Department of Health, the person who tests positive will be required to do a 48 hour look back (from onset or symptoms or COVID-19 test date) to determine who may be at risk.
At risk persons include:
Those who were in contact with a person who tested positive for more than 15 minutes cumulative in 24 hours and within 6 feet masked or unmasked.
Once at risk persons are identified, these individuals are required to:
isolate for 10 days. If they do not have symptoms after 5 days, on day 5 they can get a test and return to work with a negative test result on day 7. If they remain symptom free and do not get a test, they isolate for 10 days and on day 11 can return to work.

If you reside with a person who has tested positive
Isolate for 10 days (along with the person who has tested positive)
Once the positive person is cleared on the eleventh day, the rest of the household begins a 10 day isolation period (total 20 days)
If a member of the household develops symptoms within the isolation period and tests positive, the process of isolation starts over for the rest of the household who has not yet been positive.

PLEASE REMEMBER:
Do not congregate in groups whenever possible
ALWAYS remain masked when in proximity to any person
Wash hands frequently or sanitize if soap and water are not available
