Dear Parent/Guardian: 

 

COVID-19 is a significant potential threat to the health of Ohioans. Your efforts to mitigate the spread of disease is  important to protect yourself, your family, your community, and the rest of the public. The steps you take can be an  inconvenience but are essential, and the sacrifices you are making are appreciated by your fellow Ohioans.

 

Based upon information provided to the Perry County Health Department, your child has been identified as an individual  who has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. To prevent transmission of this contagious  disease, the Health Commissioner strongly requests that the child quarantines according to the table below.

 

The dates for your child’s at-home self-quarantining and monitoring will start from the date of their last exposure  and will continue until 11:59pm through day 14, day 10, or day 7 as detailed below: 

Suggested: 

A fourteen (14) day period, as long as you remain free of symptoms. 

Acceptable: 

A ten (10) day period, as long as you remain free of symptoms, continue to social distance, wear  a mask around others, and self-monitor for symptoms through the 14th day after exposure.

Acceptable, if  

necessary:

A seven (7) day period, as long as you remain free of symptoms, continue to social distance,  wear a mask around others, and self-monitor for symptoms through the 14th day after exposure  AND receive a negative COVID-19 test from a sample collected on day five (5) of this seven (7)  day period or later.

YOU WILL BE CONTACTED BY A CONTACT TRACER IN THE UPCOMING DAYS. THE TRACER WILL HAVE ALL OF THE  INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR CHILD’S QUARANTINE DATES AND STATUS. The school is partnering with the Health  Department to identify and notify contacts. 

 

THERE IS NO NEED TO CONTACT THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT UNLESS YOU HAVE SPECIFIC QUESTIONS REGARDING THE  QUARANTINE PROCESS. 

 

Notification Guidance:  

 

Notify the Perry County Health Department if you have questions or concerns. You can  

contact the Health Department Monday-Friday from 7:30am-4:00pm, at 740-342-5179.  

 

After hours you can contact Nursing Director Cindy Dew at 740-684-0004.  

 

It is important that you notify their healthcare provider or Emergency Response Center that they have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 before going to the facility or when calling 911 or an ambulance due to any medical issue, injury or accident that may occur. This allows them to ensure they are wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment to help prevent the spread of disease. 

 

Sincerely, 

Angela DeRolph, MPH 

Health Commissioner
