Additional considerations:

  • An individual who has a close contact/ known exposure (has been within 6 feet for 15 minutes or longer of someone known to have COVID-19 within a 24 hour period) and tests negative must still complete a 14-day quarantine.
  • State and CDC guidelines for isolation should be followed until results of confirmatory testing can guide return to work, school and activities outside your home.
  • Due to demand and limited supplies, Ashewell may not have rapid tests available until another shipment is received.
