Important Notes - Please Read

  • NC DHHS and School systems have NOT changed their guidelines to reflect that changes above, so if parents call regarding a school aged child, parents will need to follow the guidelines of their school!
  • Patients can only come out of isolation on day 6 IF they can mask at ALL times days 6-10. Otherwise, will need to isolate x 10 days.
    • Ex. Preschool kids are probably not able to do this. Therefore will need to isolate the full 10 days.
