What to Expect

Our recommendations according to the CDC guidelines. (Updated 12-02-20)

For further information and new updates, see

For Anyone Who Has Been Around a Person with COVID-19:

  1. The CDC announced two acceptable quarantine periods, though noted that the previously-established 14 days of quarantine is the best way to reduce risk of virus spread.

  2. Officials said quarantine can now end after 10 days without a COVID-19 test, if the person reports no symptoms, or after seven days with a negative test result if the person reports no symptoms.

  3. However, anyone who has had close contact with someone with COVID-19 and who meets the following criteria does NOT need to stay home.​

    • Has had the COVID-19 illness within the previous 3 months and

    • Has recovered and

    • Remains without COVID-19 symptoms (for example, cough, shortness of breath)

For Anyone Who Has COVID-19, you can be around others after:

  1. 10 days since symptoms first appeared and

  2. 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and

  3. ​Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving

    • Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation. Most people do not require testing to decide when they can be around others; however, if your healthcare provider recommends testing, they will let you know when you can resume being around others based on your test results.


These are our recommendations for the health and safety of all involved.
