COVID Protocol Updates from DHHS
Two options to end the home quarantine may be considered ONLY IF you are able to follow strict precautions at ALL times:
  • 10 days of quarantine have been completed AND you do not have any symptoms
    • You are still at risk for developing and spreading COVID and must still follow the precautions below, including through the end of the 14-day quarantine period.
  • 7 days of quarantine have been completed AND you do not have any symptoms AND you have had a negative test no earlier than day 5 after last contact with the person who tested positive.
    • A negative test does not rule out COVID infection.
  • You are still at risk for developing and spreading COVID and must still follow the precautions below, including through the end of the 14-day quarantine period.
    • PCR tests are more accurate tests. Healthcare providers should prioritize rapid tests for symptomatic patients or testing as part of an outbreak investigation.
Quarantine protocol for household members of a person with Covid-19 (ie parent or sibling of student) :
  • You should avoid contact with others outside the home while the person is sick, and quarantine for 14 days AFTER the person who has СOVID-19 has completed their 10 day quarantine.
  • Date the person with COVID-19 ends home isolation (10 days from diagnosis or first symptom) + 14 days = 24 day quarantine
 
Strict precautions include:
  • Monitoring closely for symptoms and isolate immediately if any symptoms develop
  • Wearing a face covering at all times in public settings
  • Practicing social distancing
