On November 30, 2020, Sierra County Public Health received notification of a twenty-second and twenty-third positive COVID-19 test result for residents of Sierra County. Cases are isolating and outreach to close contacts is ongoing. All close contacts identified will be contacted by a member of Public Health. A close contact is defined as someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.
If you believe you have been a close contact of somebody who has tested positive, stay home and monitor yourself for symptoms for 14 days since your last contact with that individual. Consider being tested if symptoms develop. Options for testing are listed on the Sierra County Website, or you may call your health care provider.
