Return to Work/School LetterS RESIDENTS PEORIA CO
If you have been contacted by a contact tracer - access your return to work/school letter:
If you have been in touch with a contract tracer and set up for electronic symptom monitoring through the Health Department, you can generate your own release letter once quarantine/isolation is complete (i.e. the day of release). For example, if your last day of quarantine/isolation is 3/15, you will have access to the letter on 3/16.
On the day of release, open the end of the symptom monitoring survey link sent via text or email on the final day. The system will recognize the monitoring period has ended and allow you to enter the email address where you would like to receive the letter. You can also go back to your last health assessment text or email, on your release day, and will be given the option to provide an email address for your release letter.
Peoria County residents - If you have NOT been contacted by a contact tracer - Call 312-777-1999:
If you were directly exposed to a person who tested positive for COVID-19 or you tested positive, please call 312-777-1999 and provide information that will link you to a Contact Tracer in your county. Call volume is high at this time, so be sure to leave your call back information and allow time for your county Contact Tracer to return your call. You will then receive information on isolation or quarantine and how to get your return to school/work letter.
Peoria County residents - If you are near your completion time for isolation or quarantine, have not had a Contact Tracer call, and now only need a return to work/school letter, email EpiComments@peoriacounty.org with your name, phone number, address and county of residence, your email address, your place of employment or school, who were exposed to, and the date of your last exposure to the person (if known), any positive test date (if you had a test) and the date that symptoms were better (if you had symptoms). Call volume and email volumes are high, so allow time for a call back.
Alternatively, some schools are completing their own contact tracing for letters (check with your school) or you may check with your physician. Please read the FAQ section to review the quarantine and isolation timeframes.
NOT a resident of Peoria County - You will need to contact your local county health department for instructions.
