COVID-19 Isolation & Quarantine Guidance

If you have tested positive or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive, please follow the guidance below.


The recent surge in reported COVID-19 cases has caused JCHD to redirect resources from direct Disease Investigation/Contact Tracing to a Data/Communications Center format. Therefore, If you test positive for COVID you will not be called by a JCHD Team Member. Please begin your isolation period immediately and notify all family, friends, coworkers, and others who may need to self-quarantine. You and your close contacts should follow the CDC’s updated guidance for isolation and quarantine recommendations.

If you need further assistance, such as a work release (positive cases only), please call 859-885-4149 ext. 1017 and leave a detailed message that includes:

  • First and Last Name
  • Phone Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Date and Location of Positive Test (if applicable)
  • What assistance you need

This will allow calls to be routed to the most appropriate person for assistance, who will return your call within 24-48 hours.
