Brookdale’s COVID Protocols:

For your information, following are the protocols Brookdale has in place

Definitions:

1. Isolation – you isolate when you have been infected with the virus, even if you don’t have symptoms.   Isolation is used to separate infected people from those who are not infected.

People who are in isolation should stay home until it’s safe for them to be around others. At home, anyone sick or infected should separate from others, stay in a specific “sick room” or area, and use a separate bathroom (if available).  Isolation for a person testing positive for COVID-19 is a minimum of 10 days with the improvement of symptoms and being fever-free for a minimum of 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.

What to do if you need to isolate

2. Quarantine – you quarantine when you might have been exposed to the virus.  Quarantine if you have been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has COVID-19.

*The Monmouth County Department of Health advises all close contacts to quarantine for 14 days after exposure, especially during periods when the county’s COVID Activity Level Index (CALI level) is high or very high.   ONLY if you would experience an economic or other burden by staying home for the full 14 days after exposure, you may be eligible to shorten the quarantine period to 10 days, with a negative RT-PCR test taken on day 8, 9, or 10 of exposure. 

3. Close Contact – A close contact is someone who has been within 6 feet of another person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period, with or without a mask.  Tracing for close contacts goes back 48 hours from the time the infected individual began to have symptoms, or if no symptoms, 48 hours from the time the individual tested positive.
