Broomfield’s COVID-19 one-week incidence has been increasing since Feb. 16. This means more people are being exposed to positive cases in our community. To help stop the spread of COVID-19, remember that you should quarantine after you’ve been exposed to someone with COVID-19, but before you get sick.

A person in quarantine is required to:

  • Stay home;
  • Not go to work, school or extracurricular activities;
  • Avoid other people; and
  • Watch for symptoms.

    A 14-day quarantine is the safest option and should be used by people who have regular close contact with high-risk individuals. This includes people who live or work in residential or congregate living facilities or people who have had close contact with someone infected with a COVID-19 variant of concern.

    A 10-day quarantine is appropriate for most people who do not have contact with high-risk individuals.

    Visit Broomfield.org/StopTheSpread to learn more about symptoms, quarantine and isolation.
