CDC: When to Quarantine

Important Note from the CDC: Alternatives to the 14-day quarantine period are described in the Options to Reduce Quarantine for Contacts of Persons with SARS-CoV-2 Infection Using Symptom Monitoring and Diagnostic Testing.  Healthcare facilities could consider these alternatives as a measure to mitigate staffing shortages, space limitations, or PPE supply shortages but, due to the special nature of healthcare settings (e.g., patients at risk for worsening outcomes, critical nature of healthcare personnel, challenges with social distancing), not as a preferred option. Healthcare facilities should understand that shortening the duration of quarantine might pose additional transmission risk.
