(Victor Valley)– A Quarantine and Isolation Calculator, a new enhancement to the County COVID-19 website, enables people to determine how long they should self-isolate after testing positive for the disease, being sick with COVID-19, or being exposed to someone with COVID-19.
By using this convenient tool, anyone can determine the date when his or her isolation may end after entering the date when either 1) symptoms first manifested; 2) a specimen was collected (i.e., a test was conducted); or 3) the person was potentially exposed to the disease.
The tool offers four different calculation options:
- For those who have tested positive and have symptoms of COVID-19;
- For those who have tested positive but manifest no symptoms of the disease;
- For those who have been in close contact with an infected individual but show no symptoms;
- For those who previously tested positive (by calculating their susceptibility to reinfection).
