"Quarantine means isolating completely from the community and from
others not in your immediate household. While quarantined, you should
not go into the community to the store or for any other reason. We need
your case of Covid-19 to end with you! If each positive case or exposed
family does not pass on the disease, we can begin to end this pandemic.
Ask friends outside the household to deliver by leaving on porch or front
steps any critical items or food needed. You must remain in quarantine
for fourteen days without anyone in your household developing illness.
If no one in your household becomes ill, then please practice social distancing.
If you or anyone in your household has been tested for Covid-19, you must
quarantine until the results are known. If the results of your test or
any household member’s test are positive for Covid-19, you and EVERY
member of your household must quarantine until everyone in the household
has recovered (are symptom free). Remember, the overwhelming number of
people who get this disease recover without medical care. Tylenol or acetaminophen
for fever or aches, good hydration and nutrition, and lots of sleep help
with recovery. Call the hospital and talk with our nurses at the hotline
if you have any questions or are concerned about yourself or any member
of your household.”
"This should be done by us all right now. This is to KEEP others from
spreading the infection to us. Go to the store or community only for necessities.
Keep a 6 foot distance from others while in the community. Consider all
surfaces touched contaminated (gas pumps, check out counters, door handles,
shopping carts, bank ATM canisters). Bring your items in to your home,
wash hands thoroughly (20 seconds with lots soap and water), unpack and
put away your items, and wash hands again. Do not allow any member of
your household to ride in cars or be indoors with members of another household
(this means our kids!) Taking long walks outside with dogs or friends
is ok as long as these other rules are followed. We can protect Park County,
our families, friends, and more vulnerable people if we follow these recommendations
