COVID-19 Isolation and Quarantine Information

  1.  Any person confirmed to have COVID-19 should isolate at home for 10 days from the time the   symptoms began. For any questions regarding testing, please call Routt County Public Health at 970-870-5577.

2. All close contacts of a known COVID-19 case should self-quarantine at home for 14 days from the last date of exposure. Close contacts are persons that live in the same household, intimate partners and anyone that has spent more than 15 minutes closer than 6 feet with a confirmed case. Please see #5 regarding testing during this time.

3. Close contacts of known cases are significantly at higher risk of becoming infected than people that had limited contact with a case. Quarantine helps prevent the spread of COVID-19 that can occur before a person develops symptoms or if they are infected with the virus and are asymptomatic.

4. Close contacts that are symptomatic should contact their medical provider and seek testing immediately.

5. Close contacts that are asymptomatic should wait five to seven days from the last date of exposure to seek testing. Testing right after an exposure may be too early in the incubation period to detect the virus.
