What kind of COVID-19 tests are acceptable?
Boundless Health staff, when required to test, must obtain the PCR test, ideally done on Day 2 of symptoms (Day 0 is the first day of symptoms) or, if there was an exposure but the staff member has no symptoms, on Day 5 (Day 0 is the first day of exposure).
How does Boundless Health define a COVID-19 exposure for patients?
If either party is unmasked, we define a COVID exposure as coming within less than six feet of a COVID-infected person for a cumulative total of fifteen minutes or more over a twenty-four-hour period (for example, three individual five-minute exposures for a total of fifteen minutes).
However, if both parties are correctly and consistently masked at all times, we define a COVID-19 exposure as coming within less than three feet of a COVID-infected person for a cumulative total of fifteen minutes or more over a twenty-four-hour period.
If a person served in one of our community- or center-based programs tests positive for COVID-19, when can they return to programming?
They may return to programming after all of the following conditions are met:
- They have isolated for five days from the date of their positive test (the date of the test is day zero).
- They have been fever and symptom-free for twenty-four hours.
- They can mask consistently for an additional five days.
If they cannot mask consistently, they must remain out of programming for ten days
What happens if a person served in one of our community- or center-based programs has COVID-19 symptoms?
If a person served by Boundless has symptoms consistent with COVID-19 that are unusual for them, they should isolate and obtain a test as soon as possible. If the test is negative, they may return to programming once their symptoms have resolved.
If the family/guardian chooses not to have them tested, they must remain out of programming for ten days (the date of symptom onset is day zero) or until they are asymptomatic – whichever is later.
What happens if a person served in a community- or center-based program is exposed to someone with COVID-19?
If the person served is asymptomatic and fully vaccinated, they may return to programming immediately if they can wear a mask at all times (except while eating). The family or guardian must provide proof of vaccination, a copy of which should be kept in the client’s record.
If the client is unvaccinated, they must quarantine at home until all of the following conditions are met:
- They are asymptomatic.
- It has been five days since exposure (the day of exposure is day zero).
- They have received a negative test performed on day five or later.
- They mask for an additional five days consistently.
If the family declines to test, or the individual cannot consistently mask, they must remain out for ten days.
What should a Boundless Health employee do if they need help deciding how to handle a situation related to COVID-19 symptoms or exposure?
