Quarantine and Isolation

Quarantine and isolation helps protect the public by preventing contact with people who have or may have COVID-19.
 

  • Quarantine separates and limits the movement of people who were in close contact with someone who has COVID-19. If you were exposed, quarantine and stay away from others.

 

  • Isolation separates sick people with COVID-19 from people who are not sick. If you are sick with COVID-19, test positive for COVID-19 or have been a close contact and are waiting test results, isolate, even if you don’t have symptoms.
