Do I need to self-Isolate/quarantine?
根据目前可获得的最佳科学建议,本指南适用于没有疾病症状且不是卫生保健工作者的人.

PERSON A [If this is you]:
Close contacts are typically identified and given guidance by the North Dakota Department of Health, which includes instructions to quarantine for 14 days from last exposure to the positive case. If you, as a close contact, are tested for COVID and have a negative test during your quarantine period, you still need to remain quarantined until formally released by the ND Department of Health.
 
PERSONS B & C [If this is you]:
Okay to go to work.  保持社会距离:难以保持社会距离时,应在公共场所佩戴口罩,并保持良好的洗手卫生. If you develop fever or symptoms, stay home. Call ahead before seeking care from your primary healthcare provider.
 
Close contact means being within 6 ft. for a prolonged period (15 minutes), or any household contacts.
 
If you have a connection that is more distant than the options described, you do not need to do anything more than social distancing and practice good hygiene, which is recommended for everyone. 与你有联系的人不需要做任何与其他人不同的事情,除非他们自己因其他暴露而有风险.
 
If you have had a positive COVID-19 test (nasal or oral swab), have completed your isolation period, and have been released from isolation from the ND Department of Health, you may return to normal daily activities. Once you have tested positive, you DO NOT need to have further COVID-19 testing (unless required by your employer)

When should I be tested for COVID-19?
Anytime you have COVID-19 symptoms and your health care provider suggests a test, you should do so. 

For testing to be accurate, you should be tested around 7 days after exposure, so getting a test too soon after possible exposure could lead to a false negative or false positive test.  Even though it is hard to wait when you are worrying about possible exposure, a little wait time is a good thing when it comes to testing.
 
北达科他州卫生部每周赞助静态社区测试活动,提供免费的COVID-19测试.  Williston State College will host these testing events each Monday in September from 4:00 – 6:00.

Avoiding COVID-19 Scams
Looking to exploit the public's fears, cybercriminals are using tactics such as fake texts, Coronavirus-related Android/Apple mobile apps with ransomware, and phishing emails claiming to be from legitimate organizations with information about COVID-19.

How to avoid falling for phishing scams:
  • Pay close attention to who is sending you the email. Phishing emails can come from fake Centers for Disease Control and Prevention representatives @"cdc-gov.org" rather than the correct "cdc.gov."
  • Keep in mind that legitimate email addresses don't guarantee safety. They can be spoofed or can come from an account that has been hacked, so pay close attention to what the email is asking you to do. An email that asks you to provide banking information, account password, or social security number is a red flag - you should never be asked to provide those via email.
  • 在你点击链接之前,确保你知道链接要带你去哪里——把你的光标悬停在一个链接上几秒钟,直到链接的URL弹出——并且这个链接会把你带到一个你期待的网站.
