Stay home and monitor your health
When to start and end quarantine
You should stay home for 14 days after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19.
For all of the following scenarios, even if you test negative for COVID-19 or feel healthy, you should stay home (quarantine) since symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus.
If you're quarantining at home because you might have been exposed to COVID-19, the CDC recommends that you monitor yourself as follows:
- Watch for common signs and symptoms, such as fever, cough or shortness of breath.
- Keep distance (6 feet, or 2 meters) between yourself and others.
- If you develop symptoms, check your temperature.
- Isolate yourself at home if you feel ill.
- Call your doctor if symptoms worsen.
In addition to these measures, if you've recently had close contact with someone with COVID-19, or recently traveled from or lived in an area with ongoing community spread of COVID-19, the CDC has these quarantine recommendations:
- Check your temperature two times a day.
- Stay home for 14 days.
- Stay away from other people as much as possible, especially people at high risk of serious illness.
Please stay informed with your local, sate, and federal resources for updated information and recommendations about COVID-19.
