FAQs about quarantine and isolation
What should I do if I had close contact with / exposure to someone who has COVID-19?
- Stay home until you are able to be evaluated (this is called quarantine)
- Monitor your temperature twice daily
- Watch for symptoms of infection (see list above)
- When around others, maintain social distance (at least 6 ft) and wear a mask at all times
- Discuss testing with your health care provider. See Testing for COVID-19 through UHS.
What is quarantine?
Quarantine keeps people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease. People in quarantine should stay home, separate themselves from others, monitor for COVID-19 symptoms, and follow instructions from their health care provider or local public health department.
