CDC Updated Covid-19 Guidelines after exposure to Covid-19 occurs:

Who Doesn’t Need to Quarantine:

AND

  • You consistently wore/can wear a facemask correctly

DO get tested 5 days after exposure and Isolate if you test positive following current guidelines

Who Should Quarantine:

If you come into close contact with someone with COVID-19, you should quarantine if you are in one of the following groups:

  • You are ages 18 or older and completed the primary series of recommended vaccine, but have not received a recommended booster shot when eligible.
  • You received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine (completing the primary series) over 2 months ago and have not received a recommended booster shot.
  • You are not vaccinated or have not completed a primary vaccine series.
  • You have completed all recommended vaccine series but are unable to wear a facemask consistently/correctly

To return to Day Program after exposure

To return to day program, a negative PCR test must be obtained 5 days post-exposure.

  • Ex: If exposure to an individual occurred on Wednesday 3/23/22, the individual should be tested for COVID-19 on Monday 3/28/22. This is actually the 6th day but is considered the 5th day post-exposure.

Individuals may return on the 7th day (once test result is obtained) with a negative PCR result, as long as they continue to remain symptom free and can tolerate/adhere to wearing a facemask.

  • If you are unable to tolerate a mask when around others, you should continue to quarantine for 10 days. Avoiding people who are immunocompromised or at high risk for severe disease, and nursing homes and other high-risk settings, until after at least 10 days.
