COVID-19 Guidelines

Below are the current CDC guidelines we are discharging patients with based on their status (exceptions are made for immunosuppressed and transplant patients=14 days):

There are 3 types of patients:

1)COVID19+ patients with symptoms

2)COVID19+ patients with little/no symptoms

3)Patients that were suspected of having COVID19, but we did not test

Time-since-illness-onset and time-since-recovery strategy (non-test-based strategy):

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

  • At least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since recovery defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and,
  • At least 7 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.

2)Individuals with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 who have not had any symptoms may discontinue home isolation when at least 7 days have passed since the date of their first positive COVID-19 diagnostic test and have had no subsequent illness.

3)If a patient suspected of having COVID-19 is never tested, the decision to discontinue Transmission-Based Precautions can be made based upon using the non-test-based strategy

**Any COVID19 patient should contact the office or go to the nearest ED with any of the following: continued fever >101, chest pain, worsening shortness of breath, progressive weakness or dehydration
