CDC’s new COVID-19 Quarantine and Isolation calculator takes the stress out of deciding when, and for how long, people with COVID-19 and close contacts need to stay home, get tested, and wear a well-fitting mask.

The calculator provides important information about what precautions people with COVID-19 and their close contacts can take to protect loved ones and prevent COVID-19 in their communities.

This online, mobile-friendly calculator provides a simple, easy-to-use way to help people follow CDC’s Quarantine and Isolation guidance and get customized information that applies to their unique situation.

For your questions or specific concerns about COVID-19, you may still call our agency at (859) 623-7312.

MCHD continues to offer Moderna COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters.  Please call (859) 623-7312 to schedule an appointment.

Hope Café, Richmond: Tuesdays, 3-6PM, 214 Boggs Lane

The Madison County Health Department operates a Syringe Exchange Program (SEP) to reduce the spread of blood borne diseases such as Hepatitis C and HIV among people who inject drugs (PWID) by providing a scientifically proven public health service that adopts and utilizes the best practices established for harm reduction in this population.

Services at the SEP include:

  • Clean injection equipment.
  • Hepatitis C and HIV testing available at MCHD clinic locations.
  • Hepatitis A vaccination is available at the SEP site. 
  • Proper syringe disposal, including the expectation that participants will return used needles to the SEP for proper disposal.  
  • A strict one-for-one exchange model will be employed that provides SEP participants with the same number of sterile syringes that the participant brings in for disposal. For example, if the participant disposes of 14 used syringes at the MCHRSEP, then she/he receives 14 new, sterile syringes in return.
  • Referrals for those who request health services or treatment services.
  • Free Narcan with training.
