Quarantine: Currently, quarantine orders are not required for exposure to individuals regardless of vaccine status, all exposures are now considered a high-risk contact. Exposed persons have a higher likelihood of infection and should self-monitor for symptoms and follow recommendations of masking for 10 days from first day of exposure. 

Steps for Isolation

  • Once you test positive, isolation should begin immediately.  Regardless of vaccination status, isolate in your home or in a location where you have little-to-no contact with others. 

  • Talk to a healthcare provider to learn if you qualify for COVID-19 Medications

  • Notify individuals you were in close contact with during the two (2) days before you developed symptoms (or were tested for COVID-19, if you do not have symptoms) that you have tested positive.  Close contacts should take steps to protect themselves after being exposed. 

  • Contact your employer and be prepared to provide your positive test and the letter referenced above.  Your employer may have different return-to-work requirements based on your occupation. 

  • If you need to see a doctor, CALL for instructions. If you have trouble breathing or other symptoms become severe, call 9-1-1. 

Duration of Isolation

Isolation for COVID-19 consists of either five (5) days or ten (10) days depending on the present of symptoms. Day 1 of isolation is counted by the day after symptoms start or after the day of testing positive for COVID-19. Use the CDPH COVID-19 Isolation Calculator to calculate the duration of your isolation. 

Ending Isolation: Isolation can end after five (5) days if symptoms have resolved and do not have a fever by testing negative with an antigen or rapid test. If continue to test positive after day 5 or still have symptoms present, isolation must continue for the full ten (10) days.  


Regardless of isolation time, wear a well-fitting mask around others for a total of ten (10) days, to minimize the risk of spreading the infection.  Masking guidance can be found here.
