Isolation & Exposure Reccomendations

COVID-19 Isolation & Exposure Recommendations:

If you test positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status.

Day 0-5: Stay home and wear a mask around others. If asymptomatic and you develop symptoms, restart your 5-day isolation period, with Day 0 being the first day of symptom onset.

Day 6–10: Wear a mask around others. If you have no symptoms or symptoms are improving, you can leave your home. If you got very sick or have a weakened immune system, consult your healthcare provider before ending isolation.

If you were exposed to COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status.

Day 1–10 (Day 0 = day of exposure): Monitor for symptoms and consider wearing a mask around others, especially individuals at higher risk for complications.

Day 5: Consider testing on Day 5. If you develop symptoms at any time, test immediately and stay home.
