Voyage Healthcare's goals regarding COVID-19 are to minimize exposure and further spread of COVID-19 as much as possible by keeping patients, providers, and staff safe.
- What is considered a positive exposure?
- A positive COVID-19 exposure is defined as having close contact (being closer than 6 feet for more than a total of 15 minutes. Minutes are cumulative over a period of 24 hours) with someone who is COVID-19 positive.
- An infected person can spread COVID-19 starting 2 days before they have symptoms.
Isolation & Quarantine Guidelines
On December 27, 2021, the CDC updated guidance for the recommended isolation and quarantine guidelines. The change is motivated by science demonstrating that the majority of SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days prior to the onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after.
