When to Stay Home

    • Children should NOT be sent to school while a household member is in isolation at home for a positive case of COVID. The positive household member is infectious and can transmit COVID up until their 10th day of isolation.

    • After a COVID positive household member spends 10 days in isolation, other household members will then need to begin 14 days of quarantine to allow time for symptoms to appear or not. *If no symptoms present, then on day 5 of the 14 days of quarantine, that symptom-free household member can test, and with a negative test result can return on day 8 of their quarantine (allowing minimally 7 days of quarantine), or if remaining symptom-free throughout can return after 10 days of their quarantine, and for both these timelines of return from quarantine, continue to closely monitor symptoms up to the 14th day and immediately isolate if any symptoms present.  All returning must continue to wear masks upon return, social distance, and hand hygiene. 

    • If other household members show COVID symptoms during quarantine, they begin 10 days of isolation and are not to go in public or return to school or work until they are symptom-free.

    • A person cannot test out of quarantine, even with a negative COVID test on or after the fifth day of their quarantine result; unless symptom-free. Those with a positive COVID test result and symptom-free must complete 10 days of isolation, as they continue to shed the virus.

    • If you are in direct contact with someone awaiting test results, those results must be reported within 48 hours and if positive direct contacts will quarantine. (*see above)

    • Following a COVID positive diagnosis and 10 days isolation, repeat testing is not recommended due to the possibility of false positive results.

    • If direct contact is made outside of the home with someone COVID positive, and there is prolonged contact for more than 15 minutes and less than 6-feet of physical distance, quarantining is necessary for 14 days (*see above)

    • Those vaccinated will not quarantine if they remain symptom-free, and without a positive COVID test result. Presentation of official vaccination will then be provided. 
    • Those positive and completing their COVID isolation (10 days), will not quarantine as a close contact for 90 days; if they remain symptom free.
