From the Health Department:
When an individual who tests positive for COVID-19 is identified, the Washington Township Health Department follows all appropriate NJ Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control protocols in conducting an efficient and comprehensive follow up. The Washington Township Health Department identifies close contacts of all confirmed cases to determine the need for self-monitoring. Individuals who have been in close contact with that person will be notified and will be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days.
Please note that HIPAA requirements protect each individual’s right to privacy, so no identifying information will be publicized.
IMPORTANT – This virus is in our community, and it is spreading. We cannot emphasize enough how critical it is for you to STAY HOME to slow its spread. The longer we can hold out and impede its spread by not giving it the chance to move from person to person, the greater the chance that equipment and treatments will be available that will save lives, yours included.
