1. Check-in with the reporting individual about their well being in this unique time and if we can assist them.

2. Confirm details with the reporting individual, including date of symptom onset, potential close contacts, testing info, and any other pertinent data.

5. Update the COVID-19 page on our website as a public record of any reported cases as well as our protocols.
