I’ve Been Tested for Coronavirus. Now what?
What you need to know:
If you, or someone you know, has recently been diagnosed with COVID-19, please quarantine yourself at home to prevent the spread and wait for Richland Public Health to contact you.
Richland Public Health cannot do any case investigation or contact tracing until we have the official lab results on your diagnosis, which can take up to several days after your initial testing. After we receive those results, someone from Richland Public Health will be in contact with you as soon as we are able.
We understand that this wait can be inconvenient, but in the meantime please isolate yourself and quarantine any direct contacts that have been within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more, going back to 2 days prior to when your symptoms began.
To better serve you and any direct contacts, please have full names, phone numbers, address, and date of birth ready for when we call. This will make the process go efficiently and quickly.
For any medical emergency, please call 911.
