If you have been exposed to COVID-19 but are otherwise healthy and not in a high-risk category, you may be asymptomatic. We recommend being tested even if you think you may have been exposed.
People who have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19—excluding people who have had COVID-19 within the past 3 months.
– You were within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more
– You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19
– You had direct physical contact with the person (hugged or kissed them)
– You shared eating or drinking utensils
– They sneezed, coughed, or somehow got respiratory droplets on you
– Stay home and monitor your health
– Stay home for 14 days after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19.
– Watch for fever (100.4◦F), cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19
– If possible, stay away from others, especially people who are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19
– Reducing the length of quarantine may make it easier for people to quarantine by reducing the time they cannot work. A shorter quarantine period also can lessen stress on the public health system, especially when new infections are rapidly rising.
– Your local public health authorities make the final decisions about how long quarantine should last, based on local conditions and needs. Follow the recommendations of your local public health department if you need to quarantine. Options they will consider include stopping quarantine after day 10 without testing or after day 7 after receiving a negative test result (test must occur on day 5 or later).
The CDC continues to endorse quarantine for 14 days and recognizes that any quarantine shorter than 14 days balances reduced burden against a small possibility of spreading the virus.
