Isolation/ Quarantine Guidelines Update 01/2022

FOR A POSITIVE TEST: Everyone, regardless of vaccination status and regardless if you have symptoms or not: 

• Stay home for 5 days. To calculate your 5-day isolation period, day 0 is your first day of symptoms (or the day of your positive test if you don't have symptoms)

 • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house (loss of taste or smell can persist for weeks) 

• Continue to wear a mask 100% of the time when around others for 5 additional days. If you have a fever, continue to stay home until you are fever-free for 24 hours without Tylenol or Motrin. * If your child cannot mask completely out of the house, they must stay home for 10 days total. This includes children <2yo or any school/daycare setting where they may be around others unmasked (including indoor lunch). *shortened quarantine guidelines were made to help prevent staff shortages in hospitals, businesses, and schools and are not ideal for children that cannot mask the entire day.

Most children will need to stay out for 10 full days. 

 FOR AN EXPOSURE OUTSIDE THE HOME: If you: Have been boosted OR Completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within the last 6 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 your child cannot mask completely out of the house, they must stay home for 10 days total. This includes children <2yo or any school/daycare setting where they may be around others unmasked (including indoor lunch).

If you are NOT vaccinated or boosted within the past 6 months: - Stay home for 10 days from last exposure - Test on Day 5, if possible – sooner for any symptoms.

FOR AN EXPOSURE INSIDE THE HOME: The above guidelines apply from the date of LAST exposure. If the positive individual is NOT masked inside the house (either too young or too difficult) for their full 10 days, then the exposure guidelines apply starting on their 10th day.

IF the positive individual can isolate completely, then start counting the day after the last exposure. IF the positive individual can completely mask inside the house but is not isolated, start counting on their 6th day.

* A fully vaccinated parent or sibling who can mask outside the home may continue going to school/work as long as fully masked for 20 days total.

* A non-vaccinated (or not boosted) parent or sibling must stay home for 10 days from LAST exposure, which is the positive individual’s 10th day.
