COVID-19 Updates & Information from Public Health »

Department of Public Health


On December 27, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued updated guidance which shortened the recommended isolation period for someone with COVID-19, as well as quarantine guidance for those exposed to someone with COVID-19. You can read the CDC's statement on the changes here. The Ottawa County Department of Public Health will modify its isolation and quarantine requirements and recommendations, effective immediately. We expect our communications, policies, procedures, and systems to be updated with this guidance within the next week. In addition, we are in the process of reviewing and updating our school guidance and orders to align more closely with the updated CDC recommendations.

At this time, the CDC's updated guidance are only for the general public. Local public health orders pertaining to K-12 school guidance remain in place.
