If you have tested positive for COVID-19 Please review isolation guidelines

DOH & CDC Isolation Guidelines

If you are a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case please review the CDC quarantine guidelines.

CDC Quarantine GUIDELINES
As recommended by PA Department of Health, Centers of Disease Control and World Health Organization those who tested positive for COVID-19 should NOT be retested within 90 days. Experts note that “Since the PCR test is detecting nucleic acid of COVID-19, a positive test after the 10-day isolation is likely detecting nucleic acid of dead virus”

What should I do if I think I've been exposed to COVID-19?

  1. Immediately self-quarantine. Stay home and stay separate from others.
  2. Contact LHU COVID Coordinator (570-220-2548, jma351@lockhaven.edu).
  3. If symptoms worsen, call 911 and reach out to your healthcare provider.

  3. Call your local pharmacy to determine if they are currently offering free, asymptomatic COVID-19 tests.

How is case investigation and contact tracing conducted on LHU's campus?

  1. Contacts are individuals who have been within 6 feet of a positive case for a cumulative total of 15 minutes within a 24-hour period).
  2. The contact tracer obtains a list of their contacts – the people they have been in close contact with in the 48 hours prior to the presentation of symptoms or a positive test result until the present.
  3. Each contact is notified that they have been listed as a close contact by someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and that they should quarantine for 10 days per CDC regulations and protocol. The COVID Coordinator works to facilitate a safe isolation or quarantine environment, arranging quarantine/isolation housing and no contact meal delivery as needed.
  4. Positive cases and contacts are provided with proper guidelines and description of services.
