Masks required in all indoor public settings in Oregon

On November 23, 2021, outdoor mask requirements were lifted. Masks are still recommended in crowded outdoor settings with prolonged exposure especially for those who are unvaccinated, immunocompromised, at greater risk for serious complications from COVID-19 or who are in a household with someone from one of these categories.

Third Doses

  • A third dose of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine is recommended for people who are moderately to severely immunocompromised at least four weeks after their second dose. Contact your medical provider to discuss if your medical condition qualifies you to receive a third dose at this time or for other questions about your medical care and COVID-19 vaccination.

Boosters

There is a high number of new positive cases of COVID-19 in Hood River County. We are concerned for your health and well-being and are working as fast as we can to contact positive individuals. Please answer the phone for our COVID-19 case investigators when they call. Thank you for helping us slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect our community.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, even if you are vaccinated:

✅ Isolate yourself from others for 10 days from the onset of your symptoms, or from the date of your positive test if you do not have symptoms. You can stop isolating yourself and return to work after 10 days as long as you have been without a fever for at least 24 hours and your symptoms have improved or resolved.

✅ Notify any individuals you have had close contact with starting 2 days before symptom onset, or 2 days before your positive test if you have no symptoms.

✅ Notify your medical provider if you are at high risk for complications. This includes being older than 65 and/or having a chronic medical condition such as high blood pressure, heart or lung disease, an autoimmune disorder, cancer diagnosis or have undergone cancer treatment in recent years, obesity, or diabetes.

✅ Call the health department at 541-386-1115 and ask for a case investigator if you have questions or need assistance to get food, medicine, rental or utilities assistance, alternative housing, or a letter for your employer.

If you have been exposed to COVID-19 and you are unvaccinated:

✅  If you are a close contact of someone who has tested positive, quarantining for 10 days after the last day you had close contact with that person is recommended. If you develop symptoms, you should get tested.
✅ If you have continual exposure to — for example, you live with — someone who has tested positive, you will need to quarantine for 10 days after that person is released from isolation.

If you are a close contact of someone who has tested positive and you are vaccinated, you do not need to quarantine, if:

  • You received both doses of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine (or one dose of a single-dose vaccine) AND
  • It has been at least 14 days since your final dose of COVID-19 vaccine
    OR
  • You have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past 90 days.

✅ You should still monitor yourself for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days after exposure. If symptoms develop, you should isolate and get tested.

If you are a close contact of a close contact who has been exposed to COVID-19:

  • You do not need to quarantine or get tested, regardless of your vaccination status.

✅ You should still monitor yourself for COVID-19 symptoms. If symptoms develop, isolate yourself and get tested.
