EIPH's COVID-19 Decision Tree (09/24/21)

Testing Resources
EIPH has a supply of VAULT at-home COVID-19 tests available to individuals free of charge. This PCR test involves an indiviudal collecting his/her own saliva with the virtual assistance of a VAULT medical observer. The sample is then mailed to a laboratory in a postage paid envelope that is provided with the test kit. Electronic test results are generally available within 24-72 hours. The VAULT tests are available in each of EIPH's offices. If you are in need of a test, please call (208) 533-3219 and talk with EIPH staff for instructions BEFORE reporting to an EIPH office to pick up a test.

In addition, the VAULT tests can be requested by calling the Idaho Careline at 2-1-1. The test will be mailed to your home.

For other testing options, you can check with your healthcare provider, your local pharmacy, or check out https://get-tested-covid19.org/

Information and Instructions for Positive Cases of COVID-19 and Close Contacts

It is the goal of EIPH to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. This is achieved by isolating (also referred to as quarantining) people to keep them away from others if they test positive for COVID-19 or had close contact (generally, within 6 feet of a person who has COVID-19 for a total of 15+ minutes) with a person who has COVID-19. Anyone seeking testing for COVID-19 should isolate until the test result is received.

Below are written guidance/instructions as well as videos instructions.
