For those with confirmed COVID-19:

  • Regardless of vaccination status, people who have presumed or confirmed COVID-19 should isolate for five days (day 0 is the first day of symptoms or the day of a positive viral test for asymptomatic persons). Isolation should be followed by five days of wearing a mask when around others. 

For those exposed to COVID-19:

  • If a person is unvaccinated or are more than six months out from their second mRNA dose (or more than two months after the J&J vaccine) and not yet boosted, should quarantine for five days followed by strict mask use for an additional five days.

  • Individuals who have received their booster shot or completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within the last six months, or the primary series of J&J vaccine within the last two months, do not need to quarantine but should wear a mask for 10 days after the exposure.
