FYI: CSOYO COVID POSITIVE OR EXPOSURE POLICY:
If a CSOYO member, staff member or volunteer tests POSITIVE for COVID-19, the following actions will be taken:
1. The CSOYO Manager or CSO Executive Director should be notified immediately.
2. The CSOYO Manager will notify all members of all orchestras that a positive case was reported, and will share when and where the person was onsite. The person will remain anonymous. Members and their families can make their own determination of whether they need to be in quarantine.
3. The Hamilton Co. Dept. of Health will be responsible for contact tracing. When doing so, they are most concerned with people who were in close proximity (within 6 feet) with an infected person for 15 minutes or longer.
The CSOYO will examine each case and if multiple cases are reported in a particular group, we may decide to shut down this group temporarily.
CSOYO Members, staff and volunteers are encouraged to continue to wear masks and practice social distancing while moving through the building before and after rehearsal, and in the parking lot outside, in order to minimize the chance of spread. Carpooling should be avoided whenever possible.
DEFINITION OF CLOSE CONTACT by the Hamilton Co. Health Department:
Per the CDC, those that have been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has COVID-19 need to quarantine, unless they have been fully vaccinated. People who are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine after contact with someone who had COVID-19 unless they have symptoms, however, fully vaccinated people should get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even if they do not have symptoms. They should also wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until their test result is negative.
Symptoms of COVID-19 may include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body ache, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea or other symptoms as recognized by the CDC.
Do I need to quarantine following an exposure to COVID-19 after being vaccinated?
Current CDC recommendations should be followed regarding length of quarantine. See: CDC Guidelines
