Covid-19 Close Contact Instructions
COVID-19 is spread mainly by air droplets. If you have been around or cared for a Covid 19 positive person, been closer than 6 feet-indoors, more than 15 minutes (in a 24 hour period), had direct secretions contact (sneezed/coughed on, shared utensils, kissing), then you are a Close Contact (vaccinated or unvaccinated status). Please mask (cover nose and mouth), self monitor for symptoms at least 10 days and test on fifth day from exposure. Test right away if you have symptoms. Call SHC at 757-278-3360, if you need help getting tested. As medical providers we strive to provide the best medical care in a university setting. CDC and VDH Quarantine guidelines change as variants and vaccines change. Getting updated bivalent boosters reduce hospitalizations, severity of illness, and deaths.
