Get your COVID-19 vaccine

If you tested positive or were exposed to COVID‑19:

 

Contact your medical provider if you are concerned about your symptoms or have questions about your medical care.

 

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, even if you are vaccinated:

✅ Isolate yourself from others for 5 days from the onset of your symptoms, or from the date of your positive test if you do not have symptoms. You can stop isolating yourself and return to work after 5 days as long as you have been without a fever for at least 24 hours and your symptoms have improved or resolved. After the 5 days of isolation, you should wear a mask for an additional 5 days when you are around others.

✅ Notify your medical provider if you are at high risk for complications. 

✅ The Oregon Health Authority has a webpage with instructions on what to do next.

✅ Call the health department at 541-386-1115 and ask for a case investigator if you have questions or need assistance to get food, medicine, rental or utilities assistance, alternative housing, or a letter for your employer.

If you have been exposed to COVID-19:

You do not need to quarantine, but please be aware of your potential to become sick and infect others.

✅  If symptoms develop at any point, isolate yourself and get tested. Follow isolation guidance above, even if you test negative.

✅  Avoid unnecessary visits with high-risk individuals.

✅  Consider taking a COVID-19 test 5 days after your last exposure.

There may be additional isolation or quarantine guidance for congregate living, healthcare, and K-12 school settings.
Please contact the administration of your facility or your child’s school for more information.
