What is quarantine?
Quarantine means you stay away from other people for a time when you may become sick with an infection, even if you have no symptoms.
We recommend self-quarantine for many people who return from areas were COVID-19 is widespread in communities and for people who have been in close, prolonged contact with someone ill with COVID-19. We work with people to make a plan that keeps them, their families and the public safe.
This plan includes doing the following for the 14 days after the most recent exposure:
Checking one’s temperature twice a day.
Avoiding places where many people gather, including stores, workplaces, and schools.
Staying off transportation like planes, trains, and buses.
Calling one’s healthcare provider promptly if fever, cough, or trouble breathing develop.
