[ARCHIVED] CDC Updates and Shortens Isolation and Quarantine Period for General Population

Effective Dec. 27, 2021, the CDC has updated the COVID-19 quarantine and isolation guidelines:

Isolation (for people who test positive for COVID-19):

  • People who test positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, should isolate for 5 days. If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave isolation as long as you continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days. If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.

Quarantine (for people who are exposed to someone with COVID-19):

  • People who are fully vaccinated with a booster do not have to quarantine, but should wear a mask around others for 10 days and should get a COVID-19 test on day 5. If you develop symptoms, get a test and stay home.
  • People who are unvaccinated or are more than six months out from their second mRNA dose (or more than 2 months after the J&J vaccine) and not yet boosted, should stay home for 5 days followed by strict mask use for an additional 5 days. You should get a COVID-19 test on day 5. If you develop symptoms, get a test and stay home.
