Quarantine & Isolation

This information can change. Please double check resources and continue to monitor them for up to date information.

Quarantine and Isolation rules have been updated to account for fully vaccinated individuals.  Isolation rules do not apply to individuals who have completed their COVID-19 vaccination at least 2 weeks prior to the date of contact or individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days.  A presumptive COVID-19 case is someone who has known contact and symptoms but has not yet received diagnosis confirmation from a test.

Isolation- Confirmed & Presumptive COVID-19 Cases 

  • Isolate for at least 10 days after the onset of the illness, with COVID-19 symptoms improving and at least 24 hours after a fever is gone without the use of medication.
  • Isolate for at least 10 days after the collection of a positive sample if asymptomatic or mild symptoms that do NOT include fever, cough, shortness of breath or diarrhea.
  • Isolate for at least 20 days in severe cases, if hospitalized or if the individual has a severely weakened immune system.

Quarantine- Close Contact

  • Quarantine by staying home and maintaining at least a 6 foot distance from everyone, including household members.
  • A 14 days quarantine remains the safest option.
  • A local public health administrator or designee may recommend a shorter quarantine period if the individual remains asymptomatic 10 days after their last known exposure OR after 7 days with a negative COVID-19 test. Residents and patients in long term care facilities are not eligible for shortened quarantine.
