  • Patients/inmates with a positive supplemental screen are placed in Medical Observation/Isolation and offered testing for COVID-19.
  • Patients/inmates with a negative supplemental screen are placed by MCSO in ‘Cohort housing’ for fourteen (14) days and are monitored for symptoms of COVID-19 before going to the general population.
  • Any patient/inmate from a ‘Cohort housing’ unit who develops symptoms consistent with COVID-19 is placed in Medical Observation/Isolation and is offered testing.
