Diagnosed with COVID-19

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, an employee (case investigator) from the health department might call you to check-in on your health, discuss who you’ve been in contact with and, and ask you to stay at home to self-isolate.

  • Unless you give permission, your name will not be revealed to those you came in contact with, even if they ask.
  • The health department will ask you to stay at home and self-isolate.
    • Self-isolation means staying at home in a specific room away from other people and pets, and using a separate bathroom, if possible.
    • Self-isolation is critical to protecting those who you live with as well as your community.
    • Self-isolation helps slow the spread of COVID-19 and can help keep your friends and neighbors healthy.
    • If you need support or assistance while self-isolating, then your health department or community organizations may be able to provide assistance.
  • Seek medical care if symptoms become severe. Severe symptoms include trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, confusion, inability to wake or stay awake, or bluish lips or face.

For more information on COVID-19, please call the Health Department at (630)553-9100.
