COVID-19: What you Need to Know

If your test result comes back positive:

  1. Self-Isolate for 10 days after symptom onset (or test date if you had no symptoms)
  2. Complete any questionnaires or surveys sent to you by the California COVID Team
  3. Notify your close contacts that they have been exposed and suggest they get tested, symptom monitor and self-quarantine for 10 days from the date of their exposure. Close Contacts are people you were within 6 feet of for more than 15 minutes.
  4. If you experience dangerous COVID-19 symptoms such as chest pain/pressure, difficulty breathing, bluish lips/face call 911 or seek emergency medical care.

Public Health does not require a negative test result prior to your return to work or school.

Public Health does not require that you must have a release from us in order to return to work/school.

Employers can utilize the state’s Employer Playbook to determine when to allow employees back to work. We have FAQs posted that can also be helpful to assist you in determining when to allow staff back to work, or when to ask staff to stay home.
