Staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 should notify their supervisor and isolate for five days after their symptoms started (or, if they have no symptoms, for five days after the test date) and 24 hours after any fever has resolved without the use of fever-reducing medicine and other symptoms are improving; follow all instructions from the local public health authority.
Staff who are identified as a close contact or exposure must notify their supervisor.
Close contacts of confirmed and presumptive cases who are not up to date with their ACIP recommended COVID-19 vaccinations should quarantine for the five days following exposure and remain masked when around others for an additional five days.
Close contacts who are up to date with their ACIP-recommended COVID-19 vaccinations do not need to quarantine but must wear a mask around others for 10 days following their exposure.
Close contacts who tested positive for COVID-19 with an antigen test or NAAT in the previous 90 days do not need to quarantine.
Up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination include
- Individuals 18 or older who have received all recommended vaccine doses, including boosters and additional primary shots for some immunocompromised people.
- Youth 5–17 years who have completed the primary series of COVID-19 vaccines.
Not up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination defined by CDC as:
- Ages 18 years or older and completed the primary series of a two dose recommended vaccine more than 5 months ago but have not received a recommended booster shot.
- Those who have received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine (completing the primary series) over 2 months ago and have not received a recommended booster shot.
- Those who are not fully vaccinated or have not completed a primary vaccine series.
