Sedgwick County Updates

  • Sedgwick County Health Department follows CDC’s newly established COVID-19 Community Level framework.
    • COVID-19 Community Level is based on case counts, hospital admissions and hospital capacity, and is reflected in a color-coded system indicating low, medium and high community levels.
    • Sedgwick County’s current COVID-19 Community Level is MEDIUM.
  • On August 11, 2022, the CDC updated its exposure and isolation guidance for the general public:

If you are exposed to COVID-19

If you test positive for COVID-19
or have COVID-19 symptoms

·         Wear a high-quality, well-fitting mask when indoors and around people, including at home.

·         With Day 0 as the date of exposure, test on Day 5.

·         If the test is negative, continue to wear a mask around others through Day 10.

·         If the test is positive, immediately begin isolation.


·         With a positive test or no symptoms or mild symptoms, isolate through Day 5.

·         With moderate or severe symptoms or if immunocompromised, isolate through Day 10.

·         Regardless of symptoms, wear a mask around others through Day 10.

o   You can stop wearing a mask after Day 5 with two sequential negative antigen tests taken 48 hours apart.

·         If at any time COVID-19 symptoms recur or worsen, restart isolation at
Day 0.
