a. Close contacts (defined as within 6 feet of the person with the confirmed case.) to a COVID-19 confirmed case should monitor their health closely and contact their primary care provider if symptoms appear (fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath). It is important to practice social distancing at this time to prevent further community spread- especially if you’ve potentially been exposed. Talk to your employer about your potential exposure and how they would like you to proceed with work duties/obligations. Remember that the incubation period is 2-14 days!
