Quarantine Questions

01. Do I have to quarantine if I am vaccinated and come into close contact with a COVID-19 case?
People who are fully vaccinated do NOT need to quarantine after coming in contact with someone who had COVID-19 unless they have symptoms. However, fully vaccinated people should get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even if they don't have symptoms, and wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure, or until a negative test result.
02. What do I do if I've tested positive and have symptoms?
If you are symptomatic and have tested positive for COVID, then you must isolate for 10 days from the date your symptoms began. To stop or discontinue isolation, at least 10 days must have passed since your symptoms began and at least 24 hours must have passed since your fever went away without the use of fever-reducing medications (such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen) and other symptoms have improved.
03. What do I do if I've tested positive but have no symptoms?
If you're not symptomatic but have tested positive for COVID-19, you must isolate for 10 days from the day you had your test done.
04. What do I do if I've been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19?
If you haven't been vaccinated and have been in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, it is recommended that you quarantine for 14 days. Alternatively, if you are without symptoms AND test negative after Day 5, you can be released from quarantine after Day 7. If you are still without symptoms after Day 10, you can also be released from quarantine without testing. If you have been vaccinated, you do NOT need to quarantine after coming in contact with someone who had COVID-19 unless they have symptoms. However, fully vaccinated people should get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even if they don't have symptoms, and wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure, or until a negative test result.
