Thank you for reaching out to the Taney County Health Department (TCHD) regarding an exposure to a COVID-19 positive individual.  If you have symptoms of COVID-19, please seek testing options.  According to the CDC, close contacts are anyone that has been within 6 feet of a COVID-19 positive individual for 15 minutes or more throughout the course of a day.  The CDC still advises all close contacts that are able to quarantine for 14 days from the date of last exposure to ensure COVID-19 is not spread to others.  However, under the CDC's new modified quarantine for those asymptomatic people unable to quarantine for the full 14-days, they can instead quarantine for a minimum of 10 days and then wear mask at all times and monitor for symptoms for the remaining 4 days.

Please take the brief survey below so we can determine if you need further follow up from TCHD.  Once you submit your answers a link to a release letter will be sent to you via text or email within 48 business hours.  Detailed quarantine instructions are available on the TCHD COVID 19 page at  If you have questions, please contact TCHD at 417-334-4544 ext 577.
