What happens if I test positive?
If you have mild symptoms, follow the instructions on how to isolate. If you think you need medical advice, consider a telehealth visit or nurseline advice before seeking in-person care. Medical professionals can help you decide what medications to use to treat your symptoms.
You will also receive a call from staff at Broomfield Public Health to check on your health and to do contact tracing. They will ask questions about who you have been in contact with and where you spent time. They will also help you identify any barriers you may have to stay at home during the isolation period.
If you live with other people, public health will provide education on how you can keep them from getting sick as well. Some key items to remember:
Avoid other people in your house as much as possible
Sleep in a separate bedroom
Use a separate bathroom
Remain in a separate part of the house away from others
Wear a mask inside if you must be in the same room as another person
Avoid sharing meals and kitchen equipment (including plates, utensils, and drinking glasses)
Please know that Broomfield Public Health will:
Never ask for payment of any kind
Never ask for a social security number
Never ask for proof of residency
Never require testing without discussing the individual's exposures first
