• *Due to high case counts and delays in lab reporting, public health is unable to provide timely education to all COVID-19 cases in our community, and therefore, we do not have an accurate count of people who are on isolation or quarantine. People who test positive should self-isolate and notify their close contacts. Instructions can be found at ShastaReady.org under “Quarantine and Isolation.”

• A negative test is not required for someone who has been on isolation or quarantine to return to work. If  you have had symptoms, you may return to work or school when at least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared, AND at least 24 hours have passed with no fever (without use of fever-reducing medications), AND other symptoms have improved. If you never develop symptoms, you may return to work or school 10 days after the date of your first positive test. If you were a close contact, you may return to work or school 14 days after your last exposure. Please do not return to work or school until you reach the end of your isolation or quarantine period, even if you have no symptoms.

• The state guidance that describes what can be open now and what modifications are required is listed on ShastaReady.org under “Roadmap to Recovery,” and it is grouped by industry.
