Auburn Community Hospital, Cayuga County Health Department, city of Auburn offer joint COVID-19 guidance

Auburn Community Hospital, the Cayuga County Health Department and the city of Auburn are offering joint guidance on what do if you test positive for COVID-19.


The Citizen reports they’re advising anyone with a positive test to isolate for five days, regardless of vaccination status. They say those testing positive using an at-home test should quarantine and should not seek another test at overburdened medical facilities. “DO NOT go to a medical facility for another test as this further burdens the health care system and is not necessary,” the advisory says. Residents are asked to report positive at-home tests by sending a photo of the test to [email protected]

If symptoms don’t improve within five days, then residents should seek further treatment.


The county Health Department has adopted the recent five-day quarantine guidance issued by the CDC.

“Our emergency services organizations, including Auburn Ambulance Service, our local urgent care centers, the emergency room at Auburn Community Hospital and our health system partners at the Cayuga County Health Department are significantly strained given the high incidence of COVID-19 in our community,” the agencies said in joint statement.
