**Effective 1/3/2022 FCPH will no longer be issuing quarantine letters for close contacts. Each person identified as a positive case of COVID-19 will be responsible for handing out quarantine letters which are downloadable from our website to anyone they deem a close contact. Click here for the quarantine letter for close contacts.

Effective 1/6/2022, FCPH staff is sending automated calls to individuals for whom we have received positive COVID test results. This is the message & instructions:

“You are receiving this call from Fayette County Public Health because we have been notified of a positive COVID-19 result for you or someone within your care. 

We are asking you to log in to the Fayette County Public Health website at www.faycohd.org and click on the red button at the top of the page to complete the case survey. 

This allows the FCPH staff to gather the information that they need and they will also use this to complete your letter with your isolation dates.   

Please remember to isolate for at least 5 days after your positive test results or from the day that symptoms started.  If symptoms have resolved or you are asymptomatic you can leave your house while wearing a mask when around anyone else.  If you are still having symptoms please remain at home until they have resolved.

Our website also has a printable quarantine letter that can be given to your close contacts, we will not be sending a letter to them with dates. If you have any additional questions, please contact us at 740-335-5910.”
