Tested or Exposed Next Steps

Due to an increase in cases of COVID-19, testing sites are busy and Calumet County Public Health is now using a prioritized model of contact tracing.

Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to follow up with every person who tests positive at this time. Please reference the Isolation and Quarantine Guidance links provided for the next steps following a positive test result or exposure to COVID-19.

  • Area testing sites are busy and most appointments are booking out a few days. If you have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19, and you are now experiencing symptoms, you should assume that you may be COVID-19 positive. Isolate until you are able to be tested AND receive your test result. Area Testing Locations
