Due to the recent spike in cases, the YKHC contact tracing team is working overtime to contact people who have tested positive for COVID-19. The team is asking people who test positive for help. If you test positive, immediately isolate and call your close contacts. A “close contact” is someone you were with 6 feet of for 15 minutes or more, starting two days before you had symptoms (or, if you don’t have symptoms, starting two days before you tested positive.)Recommendations for close contacts depend on if they are up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccinations. “Up-to-date” means a person has received all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including any boosters when eligible.Close contacts who you do not live with and who are NOT up-to-date on COVID vaccinations should immediately quarantine for 5 days. If the person does not develop symptoms, they should test on day 5 and, if negative, can return to their essential activities, taking extra care to wear a well-fitting mask.Close contacts who you do not live with who are up-to-date on COVID vaccinations do not need to quarantine, but should wear a well-fitting mask and test on day 5.Close contacts who you live with will need to follow slightly different guidelines, which can be found here. close contact who develops symptoms, such as cough, fever, body-ache, sore throat, should get tested immediately.TO GET TESTED: In villages, call your clinic. In Bethel, close contacts and anyone with symptoms should get tested at the drive-through testing site outside the CHSB across the street from the hospital 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The YKHC contact tracing team appreciates your support and extra efforts during this exceptionally busy time. If you have additional questions, please feel free to reach out to the COVID-19 hotline at 543-6949. Working together, we will get through this.To read this statement on our website, visit ...
