Quarantine guidance for close contacts who have not been vaccinated

We recommend the general public quarantine for 14 days from their last contact with an infected person. This option is the safest for everyone. However, a growing body of data shows that the risk of illness is greatly reduced between days 11-14. Therefore, your quarantine can end after 10 days if:

  1. You do not develop symptoms within 10 days AND
  2. You continue to monitor your symptoms for 14 days.

To be clear, there is still a risk of developing an illness between days 11-14; it is simply lower than the first 10 days. Ending quarantine after 7 days and a negative Covid-19 test is not an option.

Updated quarantine guidance for close contacts who have been vaccinated for COVID-19

Vaccinated persons with an exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 are not required to quarantine if they meet ALL of the following criteria:

  • The individual is fully vaccinated, meaning it has been at least 14 days since receiving the final dose in the vaccine series (2 doses of Moderna; 2 doses of Pfizer; or 1 dose of Janssen/Johnson & Johnson), and
  • The individual has not developed ANY symptoms since their exposure.
