The safest option is to stay home for 14 days. If you cannot stay home for 14 days due to economic or other hardship, there are two options:
- No Test Option: Stay home for 10 days. If you stay symptom free for 10 days, quarantine ends. Monitor symptoms, wear a mask, and social distance through day 14.
- Test Option: Stay home for 7 days. Get tested at Day 5, 6, or 7. Stay home while awaiting results. If the test is negative and you stay symptom free, quarantine ends. Monitor symptoms, wear a mask, and social distance through day 14.
- For travel
- Follow the above guidelines with the exception of testing on day 3,4, or5
- Still quarantining for 7 days, not returning until day 8 after proof of negative test.
