Close Contact Quarantine Flowchart

Close contact? Report it!

QUARANTINE: You stay away from others when you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 or you have respiratory symptoms and might have COVID-19. You get tested to find out if you will need isolation (if your COVID-19 test is positive).

  1. Stay at Home/Residence
  2. Stay away from others in your Home/Residence
  3. Maintain a 6-foot distance while in public spaces to perform necessary functions like picking up food, dropping off surveillance testing, going to the bathroom, etc.
  4. Wipe down any common use spaces such as bathrooms
  5. Wear a medical-grade mask at all times (N95, KN95, wired surgical mask)
  6. Test right away
  7. Also test on Day 5 of exposure, contact, or symptoms

Legend Clarifications:

Day 0: How you calculate your days of quarantine, isolation, self-monitor, retests.

  • If symptomatic, Day 0 is the date that symptoms began, regardless of when you tested positive, and Day 1 is the first full day following the date your symptoms started.
  • If asymptomatic, Day 0 is the date of the positive COVID-19 test, NOT the date that you received the test result.
  • If exposed to COVID-19, Day 0 is the date of your most recent exposure. Day 1 is the first full day after your last contact with a COVID-19 source.

Up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations: You have received all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including any booster dose(s) when eligible. Popularly known as "boosted."

  • "I got a booster" = I am fully vaccinated, was eligible, and received a booster OR I am fully vaccinated, and am not yet eligible for a booster
  • "I didn't get a booster" = I am fully vaccinated, eligible for a booster, but have not received a booster yet OR I am not fully vaccinated.
