Quarantine Protocol Updated Dec 4

Quarantine Protocol Updated

This is for persons who have been exposed (direct contact), but have not tested positive, and do not have symptoms. See the full Health Department document here.

  • Quarantine can end after Day 10 of exposure without testing and if no symptoms have been reported during daily monitoring.
  • In some cases, quarantine can end after Day 7 of exposure, if a diagnostic specimen tests negative for the SARS-CoV-2 virus and if no symptoms were reported during daily monitoring, but quarantine cannot be discontinued earlier than after Day 7.
  • In both cases, the quarantined subject must continue to 1. Monitor for signs and symptoms of illness, 2. Wear a mask when around others, and 3. Observe social distancing through Day 14 of exposure.
