JIC #106: Six people previously released from isolation returned to active isolation status this week

716

To date, 148 cases have been confirmed through COVID-19 testing provided with 5 deaths and 126 currently released from isolation (formerly referred to as recovered). One patient was released from isolation, and six people previously released from isolation have returned to active isolation status this week.

Cases are released from isolation when at least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement in respiratory symptoms AND at least 7 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.

Some cases that were previously released from isolation have returned to active isolation status after re-testing positive for COVID-19 through follow-up testing. To date, no additional cases have been linked to people released from isolation. As this is an evolving situation, information is subject to change with little to no notice.

If you are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, please call your health care
provider. If a patient does not have a regular health care provider, they can call any of the
