The CDC is aware you may not know, but there are differences between quarantining vs isolation. When you quarantine, you keep someone who has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 away from others. Isolation keeps someone who is sick or tested positive for COVID-19 without symptoms away from others, even in their own homes. For more information, please visit the CDC website. Also take a moment to read the CDC Guidance on protocols for testing and direct contacts of positive COVID cases.
You should quarantine when:
- You had close contact with a person who has COVID-19
- Stay home until 14 days after your last contact
- Check your temperature twice a day and watch for symptoms of COVID-19
- If possible, stay away from people who are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19.
You should be in isolation when:
- You are sick and think or know you have COVID-19
- Stay home until after:
- At least ten days since symptoms first appeared and
- At least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication and
- Symptoms have improved
- If you tested positive for COVID-19 but do not have symptoms
- Stay home until after ten days have passed wince your positive test
- If you live with others, stay in a specific sick room or area and away from other people or animals, including pets. Use a separate bathroom, if available.
