Health department offering COVID-19 calculator. 

District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) recently launched a new online COVID-19 Calculator to help individuals calculate their quarantine, isolation, and/or vaccination dates. The calculator’s intention is to make it easier for patients to enter specific dates, such as first date of symptoms, COVID-19 test date, close contact date, or final vaccination date, and it will calculate the final date of quarantine, isolation, or when that person is considered fully vaccinated.

“It can sometimes be confusing to figure out how long you need to be in isolation or quarantine, and this new COVID-19 Calculator will help take the guess work out of it by giving you an accurate timeframe for when you can resume normal activities,” stated Dr. Jennifer Morse, DHD#10 medical director. “It is important to note that the date provided is the last day of quarantine or isolation, not the date you are free to resume activities. When it comes to isolation and quarantine, you can get back to normal the day after the date provided.”

Another feature of the calculator is determining when a person can get a COVID-19 vaccine after receiving monoclonal antibody treatment or convalescent plasma. Individuals who received this treatment should wait 90 days before getting the COVID-19 vaccine. The COVID-19 Calculator will allow a person to put in the date when treatment is received, and it will state the date when it is safe to get vaccinated.

The COVID-19 Calculator is on the DHD#10 website at www.dhd10.org/covid-19-calculator.  To schedule a COVID-19 vaccine, go to www.dhd10.org/schedule or call 888-217-3904. For COVID-19 questions, call 231-305-8675 or email at [email protected].
