Isolation and quarantine are two of the tools we have to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. Isolation refers to a confirmed infection while quarantine refers to the time following exposure to the virus or close contact with someone known to have COVID-19.
 
Given what we currently know about COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended the following guidelines for isolation and quarantine.
 

If you test positive for COVID-19 (isolate)

Everyone, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Stay home for 10 days.
    • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house but must continue to wear a mask around others for the next 5 days.
  • If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.
 
 

If you were exposed to someone with COVID-19 (quarantine)

If you: have been boosted OR completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within the last 6 months OR completed the primary series of J&J vaccine within the last 2 months
  • Wear a mask around others for 10 days.
  • Test on day 5, if possible.
  • If you develop symptoms get a test and stay home.
 
If you: completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine over 6 months ago and are NOT boosted OR completed the primary series of J&J over 2 months ago and are NOT booster OR are unvaccinated
  • Stay home for 5 days. After that continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
    • If you cannot quarantine, you must wear a mask for 10 days.
  • Test on day 5 if possible.
  • If you develop symptoms get a test and stay home.
