If you are a Schuyler County resident and your at-home COVID test comes back positive, please fill out the COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form by clicking here. If you do not have an email address, please call our office on the next business day (607-535-8140). The form can also be found linked on the main page of the Public Health website.

If you tested positive for COVID, you should:

  1. Stay home for 5 days
    • From when your symptoms started or if you don't have symptoms, stay home for 5 days from your test date.
    • Please note: If you are still having a fever at day 5, continue to stay home until your fever goes away.
  2. Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 more days
    • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your home.
    • Wear a well-fitting mask when around others.
    • Please note: If you can't wear a mask or are moderately-severely immunocompromised, you should stay home for the full 10 days.
  3. Inform your employer / school and anyone you may have exposed
    • People with COVID are typically contagious for about 10 days after their symptoms start and the two days before their symptoms started.
    • People are most likely to get COVID from you if they:
      • Were within 6 feet of you while you were contagious for 10+ minutes
      • Spent a long time with you in the same room / enclosed space
