Terms to Know

Self-Monitoring: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Georgia Department of Health (DPH) defines self-monitoring as continuing to perform normal functions while taking everyday preventative steps, and to be alert to the development of symptoms.

Quarantine: In order to quarantine, a person must stay at home for 14 days, monitor their health by checking their temperature twice a day, and watch for symptoms of COVID-19 as defined by the CDC and DPH. Return-to-work date will be provided by Human Resources.

Isolation: According to the CDC and DPH, isolation is staying at home, and separating from others within the household by staying in a specific room or area and by using a separate bathroom (if available). You can be around others after 3 days with no fever without the use of medicine that reduces fever, AND after symptoms improve, AND 10 days since symptoms first appeared. Consult with Human Resources on return-to-work date based on symptoms subsiding.

Exposure: As defined by the CDC and DPH, exposure to COVID-19 may occur by living in the same household as a sick person with COVID-19, caring for a sick person with COVID-19, being within 6 feet of a sick person with COVID-19 for about 15 minutes, and being in direct contact with secretions from a sick person with COVID-19 (e.g., being coughed on, kissing, sharing utensils, etc.).

PPE: Personal Protection Equipment such as gloves, medical masks, respirators (N95 or FFP2 standard, or equivalent), eye protection, gowns and aprons. Certain situations call for different PPE. Right now, masks should be worn by all employees in public spaces, but speak with your supervisor to determine if additional PPE may be needed for your area of work.

Symptomatic: According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a symptomatic COVID-19 case is a person who has developed signs and symptoms compatible with COVID-19. Symptomatic transmission refers to transmission of the virus from a person while they are experiencing symptoms.

Asymptomatic: According to the WHO, an asymptomatic laboratory-confirmed case is a person infected with COVID-19 who does not develop symptoms. Asymptomatic transmission refers to transmission of the virus from a person who does not develop symptoms.

Pre-symptomatic: According to the WHO, a person is pre-symptomatic during the incubation period for COVID-19, which is the time between exposure to the virus (becoming infected) and symptom onset. The incubation period is on average 5-6 days, however can be up to 14 days. During the pre-symptomatic period, some infected persons can be contagious.
