Flow Chart 2
 
For those staff or students who are unvaccinated, below are the quarantine options from the DOH:

1) 7-Day with Negative Test Quarantine (students and staff): Students and staff must quarantine at home. Quarantine can end after 7 full days beginning after the last close contact if no symptoms have developed and after receiving a negative test result. The test should occur no sooner than on or after day 5 post-exposure. Continue monitoring for symptoms until day 14. Negative test results may come from school testing programs, a health care provider, local health jurisdiction, pharmacy, or other community-based test site. Proof of a negative COVID-19 test includes the original, a copy, or a photo of a document or other communication from the test provider or laboratory that shows:

• The first and last names of the individual tested.

• The type of test performed (must be molecular or antigen).

• The date the specimen was collected (must be on or after day 5 post-exposure).

• A negative result.

2) 10-day Quarantine: Quarantine should last for 10 days after the last close contact without additional testing required. However, if any COVID-19 symptoms develop during the 10 days, remain in quarantine and get tested. Continue monitoring for symptoms until day 14. In certain circumstances, a longer quarantine may be warranted:

3) 14-day Quarantine: Quarantine may be recommended for 14 days after the last close contact with the COVID-19 positive person. Monitor for symptoms during this time, and if any COVID-19 symptoms develop during the 14 days, get tested. If unsure, consult with your LHJ to determine which quarantine option should be followed.

 

For those staff or students who are vaccinated, please refer to the information below: 

Those vaccinated do not need to quarantine unless symptomatic, but they are to wear a mask at all times for 14 days after last close contact. Vaccinated are also encouraged by not required to get tested at day 5 or 7 after last close contact.
