Allegany County Department of Health: Changes for COVID-19 Isolation and Quarantine

Share:

The increase in COVID-19 cases across New York State and in Allegany County has caused changes in the contact tracing process. It is vital to remind those who test positive to immediately isolate and notify their close contacts who may have been exposed. Due to the overwhelming numbers, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH) will no longer be tracing close contacts. NYSDOH now has two links, one for the self-attestation for Isolation Orders and a separate link for self-attestation for Quarantine Orders.

NYSDOH links to the self-attestation forms: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/system/files/documents/2022/01/affirmation_of_quarantine_011222.pdf https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/system/files/documents/2022/01/affirmation_of_isolation_011222.pdf The NYSDOH site for frequently asked questions is also available at: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/contact-tracing-frequently-asked-questions .
