Boyle Co Health Dept Covid Case Updated Guidance: Please Share as this is how we will proceed from today moving forward.

  1. Due to the large number of positive cases, our goal is to call everyone initially but it may be a few days. Most cases will only receive an initial call and no follow up unless needed. 
  2. We will focus on high risk/school age children cases. 
  3. Do not call the Health Dept for a positive result unless your case is an emergency. Once we receive the positive results, then we will contact you.  
  4.  Use the chart below as a basic guide on how to proceed if you are positive or have been exposed to a positive person. 
  5. Quarantine/Isolation times can be different than the chart in the schools/other cases as needed. 
  6. Notice the difference between vaccinated/unvaccinated people on the chart. 

8/24 Cases for Boyle co= 26 new cases reported with an increase in cases expected daily.
