Quarantine & Isolation

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

A five-day quarantine and isolation period for those infected with COVID-19 is no longer recommended for the general population in Oregon; including people in K-12 education settings. Oregon public health officials believe widespread population immunity due to vaccination and repeated infections means many COVID-19 infections are now likely asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic, and the five-day isolation period is doing little to reduce transmission.

The new recommendation for the general population is to stay home until fever free for 24 hours and symptoms are improving; avoid contact with individuals at increased risk for severe disease, including older adults and those with underlying medical conditions; and consider making for 10 days.
