Isolation & Quarantine Information
- Isolation separates people who are known or reasonably believed to have been infected with the COVID virus from those who are not infected.
- Quarantine separates people who are believed to have been exposed to the COVID virus but who are not symptomatic from others who have not been exposed.
If you show symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in a country, city, locale or event where exposure to COVID-19 is likely, you need to quarantine yourself for 14 days. If you must self-isolate or quarantine, you will not have time or the ability to get supplies.
If you receive a positive COVID-19 test result, you will be moved to temporary isolation housing.
