Isolation Guidelines:

These guidelines and recommendations are applicable if you TEST POSITIVE for COVID-19.

If you test positive, regardless of whether you are vaccinated or unvaccinated, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Cascade City-County Health Department (CCHD) strongly recommend that you isolate until the following three conditions have ALL been met: 

1. It has been at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared; or, if you have no symptoms, it has been at least 10 days since your test date; 


2. You have had no fever (100.4° F / 38° C or higher) for at least 24 hours, without the use of a fever-reducing medication;


3. Your other symptoms are improved.

While isolating, you should stay home (except for emergency care) and minimize interaction with other household members as much as possible. If interaction with household members is unavoidable, you should wear a face covering, practice physical distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from other people, limit the duration of any necessary close contact with others, wash your hands often, and sanitize any surfaces you contact.
