Exposed to Covid?

How to Manage Patients that have been Exposed  - 8/26/21

We have received numerous requests on how to manage patients that have been exposed at home or at school to Covid-19. Please see our recommendations below:

1. EXPOSED AND NO SYMPTOMS: Children exposed to Covid-19 at home, school, sports, or social gatherings who have NO symptoms, please quarantine for 10 days. Alternatively, obtain a PCR test at a local community site or pharmacy on day 5 if you wish to return after 7 days of quarantine. Note that quarantine starts from the LAST exposure date. Continue to mask for 14 days even if the PCR test is negative as there is still a small chance of spreading the virus. At the current time, we do not have the capacity to test all exposed children at our office. The PCR test is a more accurate test for those without symptoms and is recommended by the CDC. If the PCR test is positive, then isolate the child as per the following link: http://www.cdc.gov/.../if-you-are-sick/steps-when-sick.html and call the office to schedule a telemedicine visit to discuss the next steps for your child and family.

2. EXPOSED, FULLY VACCINATED AND NO SYMPTOMS: Quarantine is not required, but your child should strictly wear a mask for 14 days from the LAST date of exposure. You may choose to get a PCR test on day 3-5 after last exposure and not mask if the test is negative.

3. EXPOSED AND SYMPTOMS: If your exposed child becomes symptomatic (even if fully vaccinated), please call the office and our triage staff will determine if an office visit or just testing is required. In the meantime, you should immediately quarantine your child.

Also, please note the following:

  • If symptoms are severe such as shortness of breath or dehydration, then the ER is a more appropriate option to be seen.
  • If your child is ill, with no known specific Covid-19 exposures, then make an office visit appointment to see your provider to evaluate the cause of your child's symptoms.
  • Please do your part by following the above guidelines and the guidelines from the CDC which include vaccinations and mask wearing.

We appreciate your patience as we attempt to respond to the unprecedented high demanded from the community. Although our office is not equipped to handle a worldwide pandemic, our staff and providers are doing their best to meet your needs.
