CDPH guidance for quarantine of Skilled Nursing Facility residents is specified in AFL 22-13.
Staying Safe During Quarantine and Isolation
If you need to be tested: Find options on the Get Tested page.
If you need a vaccine: Find options at ShastaReady.org.
Monitor your symptoms and seek medical care right away if you experience any of the emergency warning signs.
Talk with your healthcare provider to find out if they recommend prescribing COVID-19 treatments and therapeutics. Don’t delay as many need to be started within 5 days.
Additional Guidance and Settings
In the workplace, employers are subject to the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) or in some workplaces the Cal/OSHA Aerosol Transmissible Diseases (ATD) Standard (PDF), and should consult those regulations for additional applicable requirements.
