A reminder that YCCAC follows CDC Guidance in response to COVID-19 Exposures and Illness.
If you suspect you have been exposed to COVID-19 or if you tested positive for COVID-19 please let your manager know and prepare to follow these guidelines.
Please reach out to the HR Director with questions.
Exposure to COVID-19
If exposed to COVID-19, wear a high-quality mask for 10 days and get tested on day 5.
You should isolate if you are sick and suspect that you have COVID-19 but do not yet have test results.
If your results are positive, follow CDC’s full isolation recommendations.
If your results are negative, you can end your isolation.
Positive for COVID-19
If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home. You are likely most infectious during these first 5 days. Wear a high-quality mask when you must be around others at home and in public.
Regardless of vaccination status, you should isolate from others when you have COVID-19.
If after 5 days you are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication, and your symptoms are improving, or you never had symptoms, you may end isolation after day 5.
Regardless of when you end isolation, avoid being around people who are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19 until at least day 11.
You should wear a high-quality mask through day 10.
If you had moderate illness (if you experienced shortness of breath or had difficulty breathing) or severe illness (you were hospitalized) due to COVID-19 or you have a weakened immune system, you need to isolate through day 10.
If you had severe illness or have a weakened immune system, consult your doctor before ending isolation. Ending isolation without a viral test may not be an option for you. If you are unsure if your symptoms are moderate or severe or if you have a weakened immune system, talk to a healthcare provider for further guidance.
After you have ended isolation, if your COVID-19 symptoms worsen, restart your isolation at day 0. Talk to a healthcare provider if you have questions about your symptoms or when to end isolation.
