EFFECTIVE 1/18/22: Livingston County residents will NOT report positive COVID-19 home-test results to the Liv. Co. Department of Health.  Results from tests performed at a pharmacy or laboratory are automatically reported to Liv. Co. Dept. of Health and we will still issue Isolation Orders. If you need documentation of Isolation or Quarantine for your employer, etc., please use the NYS self-attestation forms below. For more information about the new approach (which is evolving), click here.

NYS issued a 5-day QUARANTINE self-report/attestation form.  This form may be used for Quarantine Release, quarantine leave benefits, or for New York Paid Family Leave COVID-19 claims as if it was an individual Order for Quarantine issued by the New York State Department of Health or relevant County’s Commissioner of Health or designee.  If you, your child, or dependent are still symptomatic after 5 days, please contact your health care provider.  Quarantine is for those within close contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19.

NYS issued a 5-day ISOLATION self-report/attestation form. This form may be used for Isolation Release, isolation leave benefits, or for New York Paid Family Leave COVID-19 claims as if it was an individual Order for Isolation issued by the New York State Department of Health or relevant County’s Commissioner of Health or designee.  If you, your child, or dependent are still symptomatic after 5 days, please contact your health care provider.  Isolation is for those who tested positive with COVID.

 EMPLOYERS: NY’s COVID-19 quarantine leave benefits are only available during the order of quarantine or isolation. Once an individual is no longer subject to an order of quarantine or isolation, they are no longer eligible for NY’s COVID-19 quarantine leave benefits. Livingston County is following the 5-day quarantine and 5-day isolation period. Please refer employees to their health care provider if they are still sick beyond 5 days.

What do I do questions?

  1. Isolation ends after 5 full days when you are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and your other symptoms have improved (However, loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and isolation can end even when those symptoms linger). 
  2. If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever has resolved for 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing medications.
  3. If you had COVID-19 symptoms and were hospitalized, follow the instructions of your healthcare provider.
  4. After leaving your isolation, you must continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days. Wearing a well-fitting mask following isolation will decrease the small risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission to others. Respirators (e.g., N95 masks) are a useful option for personal protective equipment to protect people from exposures in specific settings.
  5. Notify your close contacts of their exposure as soon as possible. Your close contacts should follow the steps below (#1 and #2) and may need to self-quarantine.
