Updated COVID-19 Isolation Release Times

SHARE

The CDC and DHS have updated the COVID -19 isolation and release times for people that have been diagnosed with and people that have been tested and are awaiting test results for COVID-19. The self-isolation release time has been increased from 7 to 10 days. If you have employees self-isolating please contact your county health department to make sure your employees are self-isolating for the recommended amount of time.

If you have been tested for COVID-19 and are awaiting test results, you should self-isolate and self-monitor in order to protect yourself and your community from COVID-19. You should follow these recommendations for at least 10 days since symptoms first began AND for at least 3 days after symptoms resolve. If you receive a negative test result, you should follow these recommendations until at least 24 hours after your symptoms resolve (no fever and improvements in other symptoms)

Being diagnosed with COVID-19 can mean that you had a positive lab test or a doctor told you that you had COVID-19. If either of these situations occurred, you should practice self-isolation and self-monitoring in order to protect yourself and your community from COVID-19. You should follow these recommendations for at least 10 days since symptoms first began AND for at least 3 days after symptoms resolve.
