  • Helpful Tips: 
    1. Don’t panic. It is normal to feel scared and to not know what to do. If at any point you need guidance, don’t hesitate to reach out to your doctor or Napa County Public Health. 
    2. Most people should test 5-7 days after the date of last exposure, if you are unclear of when you should test contact your doctor or Public Health for information.
    3. If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, whether you were knowingly exposed or not, get tested and isolate from others. Wear a mask to protect other people living in your household and other close contacts. If symptoms worsen, please call your doctor.
    4. People who are severely ill with COVID-19 might need to stay home longer than 10 days and up to 20 days after symptoms first appeared.
    5. People with weakened immune systems may need additional guidance, please contact your doctor or Public Health for more information about isolation/quarantine. 
  • Note, school districts are only accepting specific types of COVID-19 tests and some schools have in-school testing options. Contact your school for more information. 
  • Guidance for vaccinated and unvaccinated/partially vaccinated individuals varies so please read the CDC guidance carefully.
