Current CDC recommendation for persons with COVID-19 illness is to isolate for 10 days after symptom onset AND resolution of fever for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing medications, and with improvement of other symptoms. Isolation is used to separate people infected with COVID-19 from people who are not infected. People who are in isolation should stay home until it’s safe for them to be around others.

For persons who have had direct contact with someone with the COVID-19 virus, the CDC recommends quarantining at home for 14 days after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19. While in quarantine, watch for fever (100.4◦F), cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19. Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms.
