Updated Information on Quarantining and Contact Tracing


If you tested positive between November 19 and December 1, you will receive a letter from Wayne County Health Department confirming your positive results. You may need this letter for your school or place of employment. Please follow all the information in the letter. There is no need to call the Health Department.

Wayne County Health Department is concentrating on calling individuals who tested positive for cases reported to us starting December 1. Wayne County Health Department is following the updated quarantine guidance from the Ohio Department of Health and the CDC. That information can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/quarantine.ht…

Wayne County Health Department is joining most local health departments in the United State and doing contact tracing by proxy. This means that, if you have tested positive, you are being asked to call your own list of close contacts. Those testing positive starting December 1 will be informed on the phone and will be asked to do their own contact tracing. Please make sure that your phone can receive voicemail if you do not pick up our call. For those who tested positive between Nov. 19-30, please see the letter for information on calling your own close contacts.
