On Friday, April 1, 2022, Missouri will transition to a new phase of the COVID-19 pandemic response. The SARS-CoV-2 virus is expected to continue circulating in our communities and, therefore, will be considered endemic. The endemicity also means that surveillance priority will change from monitoring case numbers to monitoring disease severity and societal impact. To reflect these changes, The Pike County Health Department and the Missouri State COVID-19 dashboards will transition to a new layout that will highlight specific data that will help public health leaders measure the impact and severity of COVID-19. These dashboards will be updated each Friday.

Q&I (Quarantine & Isolation) Calculator
CDC’s new COVID-19 Quarantine and Isolation (Q&I) Calculator takes the stress out of figuring when, and for how long, people with COVID-19 and close contacts need to stay home, get tested, and wear a well-fitting mask. Developed in response to requests from partners and the public, the calculator provides important information about what precautions people with COVID-19 and their close contacts can take to protect loved ones and slow the spread of COVID-19 in their communities.
*Please note that the Q&I Calculator is not for people with COVID-19 who are moderately or severely ill or those who have a weakened immune system (immunocompromised)—you should talk to your doctor about when to end isolation. In addition, this tool does not apply to cases and close contacts identified in certain settings. Parents with children in K-12 schools or early care and education (ECE) programs should consult the program administrator for specific isolation and quarantine guidance in their school or ECE setting.
COVID-19 Self Checker
The CDC's Coronavirus Self-Checker is an interactive clinical assessment tool that will assist individuals ages 13 and older, and parents and caregivers of children ages 2 to 12 on deciding when to seek testing or medical care if they suspect they or someone they know has contracted COVID-19 or has come into close contact with someone who has COVID-19.
The online mobile-friendly tool asks a series of questions covering topics such as isolation and quarantine, vaccination status, symptoms, test results, exposure, underlying medical conditions, etc. Based on the user’s responses, the tool then provides information about interpreting test results and when to quarantine and isolate, as well as recommended actions and resources.
