List Close Contacts Here
IMPORTANT: Your close contacts must quarantine. They should quarantine for 14 days from the last contact with the COVID positive person (while they were considered contagious).
If close contact tests negative, they still must complete the quarantine since symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus.
A close contact is someone who was closer than 6 feet, for 15 minutes or more -this is cumulative time throughout the day- with or without masks to the COVID -19 positive person during their contagious period.
The contagious period begins 2 days before symptoms start, (or 2 days before testing if no symptoms) and goes until the positive person was isolated from others.
Any time a new household member gets sick with COVID-19, they will need to restart the quarantine period. If they cannot avoid close contact with the person who has COVID-19, their quarantine will start only after the person who has COVID-19 meets the criteria to end home isolation. This could mean household contacts may be in quarantine for 24 days or more! If they can quarantine away from you, they should!
Contacts of a contact do not need to quarantine but should monitor themselves for symptoms.
It is recommended for close contacts of a positive case to wait 5-7 days after exposure to obtain testing if asymptomatic.
