Quarantine Questions

01. Do I have to quarantine if I am vaccinated and come into close contact with a COVID-19 case?
VACCINATED PERSONS are not required to quarantine if they meet all the following criteria:
• Are fully vaccinated (≥2 weeks following receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose series, or ≥ 2 weeks following receipt of one dose in a single dose vaccine) and
• Received their last dose in the series within the last 3 months and
• Have remained asymptomatic since the exposure to COVID-19

Note: Fully vaccinated persons should self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days following exposure. If symptoms develop, they should contact their healthcare provider to discuss the need for SARS-CoV-2 testing and isolation. Quarantine recommendations for vaccinated persons, including the criteria for timing since receipt of the last dose in the vaccination series, will be updated when more data become available and additional COVID19 vaccines are authorized.
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 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.
