Information for Carver County Residents Regarding COVID-19
New Minnesota Department of Health guidance, issued on Tuesday, March 17 in response to a national shortage of COVID-19 testing supplies, means large-scale testing is suspended, at least for the near-term. Starting immediately, tests sent to the MDH lab are only for those patients who are hospitalized, ill health-care workers, and ill persons living in congregate settings.
Patients with undiagnosed fever and/or acute respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath), even those not able to be tested, should self-quarantine for 7 days after illness onset, or 72 hours after resolution of fever (without taking fever-reducing medications), and improvement of respiratory symptoms. Call ahead to your health-care facility before seeking treatment.
Patients who canít be tested should isolate themselves from household and intimate contacts as much as possible. Household and intimate contacts of these individuals should limit their activities in public for 14 days after incorporating precautions in the home and monitor for symptoms.
We will communicate out any additional information and plans as they come available.
Effective communication is an important component related to managing what is now a global pandemic, so we want to provide you with the following resources and information on this topic.
Current CDC recommendations include washing your hands frequently, avoid close contact with people who are sick, practice social-distancing and staying home when you are sick.
