Discontinuing Home Isolation for Persons with COVID-19:

Accumulating evidence supports ending isolation and precautions for persons with COVID-19 using a symptom-based strategy. Specifically, researchers have reported that people with mild to moderate COVID-19 remain infectious no longer than 10 days after their symptoms began, and those with more severe illness or those who are severely immunocompromised remain infectious no longer than 20 days after their symptoms began. Therefore, CDC has updated the recommendations for discontinuing home isolation as follows:

Persons with COVID-19 who have symptoms and were directed to care for themselves at home may discontinue isolation under the following conditions:

  • At least 10 days* have passed since symptom onset and
  • At least 24 hours have passed since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
  • Other symptoms have improved.

*A limited number of persons with severe illness may produce replication-competent virus beyond 10 days, that may warrant extending duration of isolation for up to 20 days after symptom onset. Consider consultation with infection control experts. See Discontinuation of Transmission-Based Precautions and Disposition of Patients with COVID-19 in Healthcare Settings (Interim Guidance).

Persons infected with SARS-CoV-2 who never develop COVID-19 symptoms may discontinue isolation and other precautions 10 days after the date of their first positive RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 RNA.

Stay home if sick

Sanitize your hands if you cannot wash
Sanitize your area daily
Avoid the public

We will provide an update when we are notified of any changes.

COVID-19 April 27th Update

We Made it 30 Days ! ! ! 
Expect Another 30  (Maybe 60) Days
It’s been 30 days it feels more like a year good job getting it done and let’s keep our efforts up for the next 30 maybe 60 days.
Asked To Limit Contact

I asked you to please limit your interactions the expectation was that you came to work and went home and I know a number of you did that.
Forgot To Ask If Needs Aren’t Met

What I forgot to ask is that were all your needs met. My assumption was getting a full-time paycheck would satisfy your needs I didn’t realize some people had needs beyond that, I’m sorry about that omission.
Respectfully Tell Those Near You

If you are needing to work to pay the rent or satisfy other needs. Realizing that a haircut and rent are different. A haircut is a want a rent payment is a need. Respectfully tell those near you that you are flying in and out of the country or visiting hotspots like Long Island so they can take extra precautions.
Asking To Drop Wants 

I will continue to ask you to drop your wants like hanging out in the backyard with friends. We need to keep social distancing up for another 30 maybe 60 days. I know it’s difficult and every effort you make helps us continue to operate and satisfy those paychecks.
