Covid Prevention and Response

When community transmission levels rise to moderate or high, individuals arriving to participate in a day program will be screened for symptoms.

If community transmission increases to moderate or high rates, staff and participants staying overnight on LAC property will be asked to self-screen for 7 days immediately prior to arriving on site and COVID test with a PCR or antigen test prior to arrival.

When COVID-19 community level is high in Woodford County, everyone ages 2 or older shall wear a mask indoors on LAC property and in LAC vehicles, and when individuals will be in close contact. If community level is low or medium, masks are not required but can be worn based on personal preference.

When indoors or in LAC vehicles, open doors and windows to increase air flow when practical.

Wash or sanitize hands often, especially:

    • Before eating or preparing food
    • Before touching your face
    • After using the restroom
    • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
    • After handling your mask
    • After transporting in an LAC vehicle
    • When switching program areas

LAC recommends that all staff stay up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines. Staff that are vaccinated are asked to provide a copy of vaccination card. Staff who are not vaccinated will be required to provide a negative COVID test prior to their first day of work.

Staff will clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces regularly, including tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.

Staff will self-monitor for symptoms, including fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, headaches, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea. If you have a fever or 3 or more of these symptoms, stay home and contact your supervisor. If you have symptoms, get tested and follow CDC recommendations.

  • If you test positive, isolate for 5 days or until your symptoms have improved and you are fever-free for 24 hours. Wear a mask for an additional 5 days after isolation. Recommendation is to continue to stay home after day 5 if fever persists.
  • If you were exposed to COVID and are not up to date on Covid vaccines, quarantine for at least 5 days and get tested on day 5. Wear a mask for an additional 5 days after quarantine.
  • If you were exposed to COVID and are up to date on Covid vaccines, you do not need to quarantine, but wear a mask for 10 days when around other people and get tested on day 5 post-exposure.
