Cape Girardeau County Public Health Center is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. We are working diligently with our community partners and the Missouri Department of Health Senior Services to protect the health and safety of Cape Girardeau County residents. The Health Center will continue to provide updates to providers as needed.
If you have been tested for COVID-19, please help us and your close contacts from spreading COVID by doing the following:
1. Quarantine UNTIL you receive your test result. Quarantining keeps you from unknowingly spreading the virus to others and stops the chain.
2. If you are positive, isolate yourself from the rest of your household members as soon as possible for 10 days. Isolation from household members can prevent your family members from getting sick.
3. Let your close contacts know that you tested positive and ask them to quarantine for 10 days from their last exposure to you. There is no test out option.
