What should I do if I have been exposed to someone with COVID-19?
Irrespective of vaccination status or previous infection, persons who were exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 or have been told by a healthcare provider or public health authority that you were exposed should wear a high-quality mask or respirator (e.g., N95) for 10 days any time they are around others, and should receive testing ≥5 days after exposure (or sooner, if they are symptomatic).
- Employees may choose to work at a system facility provided that they wear a well-fitting mask for 10 days from the date of their last exposure to someone with COVID-19 (Day 0 is the day of your last exposure to someone with COVID-19);
If an employee does not choose to return and wear a mask as indicated above, they must stay home for 10 full days after the last exposure.
- Employees should schedule a COVID-19 test, or complete a self-test ≥5 days after exposure (or sooner, if they are symptomatic).
