IMPORTANT: Your close contacts should quarantine. The quarantine period starts from the last date of contact with the COVID positive person (while they were considered contagious). This date is considered day 0.
If close contact tests negative, they still must complete the quarantine.

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. 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 days after exposure to obtain testing if asymptomatic.
