Recommendations and Resources

 

General Recommendations:

  • Get vaccinated if you are eligible! see the latest updated guidance on "Fully Vaccinated" benefits. Fully vaccinated people can resume activities they did before the pandemic, including participating in indoor and outdoor activities - large or small - without wearing a mask or physically distancing. 
  • DHS and CDC continue to recommend masks, regardless of vaccination status, in public transportation, schools, health care settings, correctional facilities, homeless shelters, and other settings where additional regulations still exist.
  • When you go out, and if you are not vaccinated, wear a mask and maintain at least a 6-foot distance between yourself and others. Even though we are making progress on vaccines, there are still many more people unvaccinated than vaccinated.
  • For Events & Gatherings, see CDC Guidance for Organizing Large Events and Gatherings. Event planners should consider implementing strategies to encourage behaviors that reduce the spread of COVID-19 among staff and attendees, including but not limited to: Promoting healthy behaviors that reduce spread; maintaining healthy environments, maintaining health operations, and what to do if someone gets sick.
  • Utilize the Wisconsin DHS Staying Safe in Your Community webpage that now includes guidance for many different types of Spring and Summer activities.
  • For travel, see CDC Travel Guidance.
  • Playing Sports: Guidance for Unvaccinated People
  • Guidance for Operating Youth Camps
  • If you feel sick, stay home.
  • Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face.

What to Do if You Are Sick

 

 

Where You Can Get Tested

 

  • ​For testing with your healthcare provider, call prior to arriving unless it is an emergency.
  • For Statewide private and community testing sites:
  • Learn the Difference Between Common COVID-19 Test Types: Fact Sheet
  • What should I do after I get tested?
    • While you wait for your COVID-19 test results, continue to take steps to keep yourself and others safe. Follow recommendations to self-isolate and self-monitor in order to protect yourself and your community from COVID-19.
  • Were you tested for COVID-19 at a Community Testing Site?
    • If yes, You will be notified of your test results by phone or email. If you have been waiting for more than five days for your results from a community testing site, call the results hotline at 1-866-419-6988, Monday - Friday 8 AM - 6 PM.
  • Where can I get an antigen test?
    • Antigen tests for public are currently not available at Wisconsin National Guard (WING) Community Testing Sites. However, some other Community Testing Sites may have antigen testing for public e.g. University of Wisconsin testing sites. Or, call your healthcare provider to see if they have antigen testing.
  • Where can I get an antibody test?
    • Some Pick 'n Save and Metro Market sites offer antibody testing. ANTIBODY TESTING CANNOT BE USED TO REPLACE OR GET OUT OF QUARANTINE.

What to Do if You Test Positive

 

What to Do if You Are Exposed 

 

  • A Close Contact is defined as any of the following:
    • Closer than 6 feet, for 15 minutes or more total in a day
    • Direct exposure to coughs, sneezes, or other bodily fluids
    • Direct physical contact with someone e.g. hug, kiss, handshake
    • Living or having spent the night with someone
  • What is quarantine? Please see CRCHD Quarantine Guidelines or DHS COVID-19: Diagnosed or Close Contact?
    • New CDC Guidelines have options for the 14-day quarantine for close contacts to be shortened to 7-10 days. As long as individuals have not had any symptoms, then they can end quarantine after 7 days and an approved negative test result or after 10 days without a test. However, the CDC "gold standard" for quarantine remains 14 days, because the incubation period for COVID-19 is 2-14 days. CRCHD can help support the 10-day option. However, for the 7-day option, individuals will need to coordinate with their employer or school for early release - this cannot be facilitated through CRCHD. It will be the decision of each employer and school to determine which option they will use for quarantine: (1) 14-day quarantine/no testing/no symptoms, (2) 10-day quarantine/no testing/no symptoms/monitor for symptoms days 11-14, or (3) 7-day quarantine/negative approved-test/no symptoms/monitor for symptoms days 8-14.
  • How long do you need to quarantine? Please see CRCHD Quarantine Fact Sheet or Next Steps: Close Contacts of Someone With COVID-19
  • If you develop COVID-19 symptoms during quarantine, you should get tested (see Where can You get Tested?)
  • Even if you have a negative test during quarantine, you still need to stay home for 14 days.
