A probable is treated like a positive and asked to isolate. A probable is someone that has not been tested but presents with symptoms and has been exposed to a confirmed case or has a positive antigen result.

MOVHD encourages individuals to be cautious when traveling and to remember that everyone should wear masks when inside a place of business unless health restricts the use of a face covering.
