If Your Home COVID Test Is Positive

You should assume you are infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 and take measures to get care you need and isolate away from others- weather or not you are fully vaccinated. Tell your health care provider about your positive test result and keep in touch with them during your illness. If you do not have a provider or need assistance with isolation, reach out to you Care Connect hub or call the Care Connect Hotline at 1-833-453-0336. If your illness becomes severe, seek medical attention. To avoid spreading the virus to others, follow DOH recommendations, which have information for a person who tests positive and has symptoms, as well as for those who have a positive test without symptoms.

Positive results for self-test should be reported to the Department of Health (DOH) by calling 1-800-525-0127 and DOH’s hotline personnel can guide callers through any questions they may have.

 As much as possible, stay in a specific room and away from other people and pets in your home or place of residence.  If possible, you should use a separate bathroom.  If you need to be around other people or animals in or outside of the home or place of residence, wear a mask.  Don’t share personal household items, like cups, towels, and utensils.  Monitor your symptoms.  If you develop symptoms of more severe disease including trouble breathing, seek emergency medical care immediately.

Tell you close contacts that they may have been exposed to COVID-19. An infected person can spread COVID-19 starting 68 hours (or 2 days) before the person has any symptoms or tests positive. By letting you close contacts know they may have been exposed to COVID-19, you are helping to protect everyone. Notify your school. Sequim School COVID Central can be reached at: covidcentral@sequimschools.org or by phone after 9:00am at 360-582-3433.
