I’m a Close Contact of a Positive Case

The rapid spread of COVID-19 through our community means that we’re all at risk for exposure. If you think you’ve had close contact (with someone for more than 15 minutes less than 6’ apart from one another), use the following guidelines to keep your friends and family safe. If you develop symptoms at any point, get tested here.

Exposure: If you’ve been exposed to a positive case, you may need to quarantine.

If you are fully vaccinated (two weeks since your second Pfizer/Moderna shot or two weeks since your Janssen):

  • Resume normal activities like going to work and school, as long as you remain symptom free.
  • Monitor for symptoms for at least 14 days
  • Schedule a free PCR test on Day Five following exposure to ensure you’re not passing the virus to others, even if you’re not experiencing symptoms
  • Mask indoors for 14 days following your exposure
  • If you become symptomatic, schedule a test and remain at home until you receive results.
  • Request your official quarantine documentation here

If you are not fully vaccinated:

  • Stay home for ten days following the day of exposure
  • If you would like to test, you can opt for a modified quarantine which consists of a PCR test on Day Five following your exposure. If those results come back negative, you may end quarantine on Day Seven.
  • If you do not wish to test and you remain asymptomatic, resume normal activities as as soon as Day 10 after exposure. 
  • If the exposure is someone in your household or you have prolonged and continual contact with, you must quarantine until the positive case is fully recovered and has exceeded the positive’s 10 day isolation.
