When to Quarantine

Close Contact

You may need to quarantine if you’ve been in close contact (6 feet for 15 minutes) with someone known to have COVID-19.

Quarantine Requirements

Unvaccinated individuals and those who are not up to date with their COVID vaccination (vaccinated and eligible for a booster but not yet boosted) who have been in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 need to Quarantine.

  • Stay away from others for 5 full days (day 0 through 5) after the last exposure, get tested on day 5, and if that test is negative, self-monitor for symptoms for 10 days.
  • If you develop symptoms, get tested immediately.

If you are not up to date with your COVID vaccinations you are expected to submit the Close Contact Self-Report Form. If you are vaccinated and up to date (meaning you have either had a booster shot or have been recently vaccinated and are not yet eligible for a booster) you do not need to quarantine, unless symptomatic, but get a test 5 days following exposure.
