Mono County Health Dept. Clarifies Covid-19 Test Results Guidance Protocols In Wake Of Rapid Rise In Positive Cases Strains

 

Following a rapid rise in positive COVID- 19 (Coronavirus) cases, the Mono County Health Department (Public Health) is urging residents and visitors to follow proper guidance and protocols upon receiving a positive COVID-19 test result.

The dramatic increase in positive COVID-19 cases is impacting the Public Health Department’s ability to provide adequate contact tracing services, and it is important that infected individuals adhere to the following guidance to help mitigate further spread:

1. Isolate for a minimum of five days beginning the date you tested positive for COVID-19. Avoid all contact with others, including members of your family.

2. Notify all individuals that you have been in close contact with over the prior seven-day period before testing positive, and encourage them to test for COVID- 19 infection.

3. Once your symptoms have resolved, and following your five-day isolation period, you may return to work and normal activity.

4. If you experience severe symptoms, such as shortness of breath, or if your symptoms do not improve, see your medical provider or report to the Emergency Room immediately.

The Public Health Department will continue to provide contact tracing services as quickly as possible, but residents are encouraged to follow the previously outlined guidance until they are contacted.

Rapid rise? In Northern Mono County, we have had 23 positive cases in 60 days. That’s one every 3 days. I don’t consider that “rapid rise” or “surge”. Watch the numbers, before you read the headlines….

Perhaps you should watch the numbers that are on the Mono County website as opposed to those that come pony express, they are a little more updated and accurate.

Considering the recent covid variant discovered halfway around the world less than two months ago is now responsible for approx 95% of the new cases in our country, I don’t see how being in North Mono County has much relevance in the bigger picture.

You pull numbers out of your rear end and claim they are from the county website and now you are going to mock your neighbors for being concerned?
