SHEBOYGAN COUNTY — Dealing with COVID-19 has been very overwhelming the last several months, but it becomes all the more so when it hits close to home. 

We're here to help you navigate through COVID-19 whether it's a look at the overall figures, how to stay safe and what to do if you've been exposed.

I've been exposed to COVID-19. What are my next steps?

If you've been around someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or is showing symptoms, the first step is to get tested yourself. You can find a list of the current Sheboygan County Testing sites here.

With each of these sites, results are not immediate, so you will want to self-quarantine for 14 days according to public health officials.

If you do not have a job that lends itself to working from home during this period, one of the many resources offered by the Sheboygan County Division of Public Health is a letter for your employer stating you've been exposed and need to quarantine.

To access this letter, visit sheboygancounty.com or click here. The form is simple from there, requiring your name, last date exposed to someone with COVID-19, the date of your final quarantine day and email address.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has a 14-day fever and symptom tracker available on its website or by clicking here to help monitor your self-quarantine.
