The only documentation currently being provided by the Ulster County Department of Health (DOH) are mandatory quarantine orders, which are provided in writing. If the person is scheduled to receive written orders, they will be contacted by DOH.
If the DOH determines that an individual can be released from quarantine, that release will be delivered verbally via phone call. If documentation is required, it will be emailed.
Employers may accept a letter from a primary care physician indicating an employee’s need to self-quarantine. For employees looking to apply for Paid Leave, a doctor’s letter attesting to a patient having met the State’s criteria is required. The COVID-19 Paid Sick Leave Hotline is available at 844-337-6303.
