Quarantine/Isolation Quick Reference:

Quarantine refers to preventing the spread of illness by separating individuals who have had close contact with someone with COVID-19. A close contact is an individual who was within 6 feet of a COVID-positive person for 15 minutes or more over a cumulative 24 hours, regardless of mask wearingAs of 4.5.21, a quarantine period is 14 days from last exposure. Quarantining means staying home (except to get medical care) and getting tested if symptoms develop. 

Isolation for a positive COVID-19 case is 10 days from when symptoms start (or if someone is tested with no symptoms, the 10 day isolation begins on the date the test was done). People in isolation need to keep themselves away from others, including family members, until their isolation period is done.

Example for children: If a child is identified as a close contact and can not quarantine away from positive case (i.e. mom is positive and has a young child), then the child’s quarantine begins after the positive case’s isolation ends. This may result in the child being in quarantine for 24 days (10 days isolation of positive case + 14 days quarantine from last exposure).
