Isolation and Quarantine Information
Contact your medical provider if you are concerned about your symptoms.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19, even if you are vaccinated:
✅ Isolate yourself from others for 5 days from the onset of your symptoms, or from the date of your positive test if you do not have symptoms. You can stop isolating yourself and return to work after 5 days as long as you have been without a fever for at least 24 hours and your symptoms have improved or resolved. After the 5 days of isolation, you should wear a mask for an additional 5 days when you are around others.
✅ Notify any individuals you have had close contact with starting 2 days before symptom onset, or 2 days before your positive test if you have no symptoms.
✅ Notify your medical provider if you are at high risk for complications. This includes being older than 65 and/or having a chronic medical condition such as high blood pressure, heart or lung disease, an autoimmune disorder, cancer diagnosis or have undergone cancer treatment in recent years, obesity, or diabetes.

If you have continual exposure to — for example, you live with — someone who has tested positive, you will need to quarantine for 5 days after that person is released from isolation.
