Health Department Guidelines For Travelers

The Rice County Health Department is asking all residents that take a cruise, travel to another country, or travel to a domestic hot spot to self quarantine in their home upon returning to Rice county. "Self quarantine" means staying in your house or yard and not having close (within 6 feet) interactions with other people. Anyone developing a fever, cough, or shortness of breath during the 14 days should contact the health department to determine next steps which may include a test for covid-19. The health department would also appreciate it, if you have plans for such a trip, to notify them when you return so they can give support, and help monitor during the quarantine period.  If you have any questions please contact the Rice County Health Department at (620) 257-2171,
