COVID - Positive? Exposed? Testing Sites!

This week the CDC released new guidelines on what to do if COVID positive or after an exposure. We know this can be confusing and overwhelming so we put together this summary for you. 
 
POSITIVE COVID TEST :
 
Everyone (regardless of vaccination status)
• Stay home for 5 days.
• After 5 days:

  • If no symptoms or symptoms are resolving may leave the house but MUST wear a mask outside of the home for at least 5 days (**SEE NOTE BELOW)
  • If have fever (within 24 hrs) or symptomatic, continue to stay home until fever resolves and symptoms are improving

 
**If your child cannot mask completely out of the house, they must stay home for 10 days total. This includes children <2yo or any school/daycare setting where they may be around others unmasked (including indoor lunch).
 
 
COVID EXPOSURE outside of home (Not ongoing exposure):
 
No symptoms AND either Boosted OR Vaccinated with 2 doses Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within last 6 months (Booster not due)

  • Wear a mask around others for 10 days (**SEE NOTE BELOW)
  • Test on day 5, if possible (stay at home if positive).
  • If develop symptoms, get a test and stay home until results known.

 
No symptoms AND NOT boosted or NOT fully vaccinated (2 doses of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within last 6 months):

  • Stay home for 5 days
  • After 5 days
    • Test on Day 5, if possible – sooner if symptoms develop
    • If no symptoms, may leave the house but MUST wear a mask outside of the home for at least 5 days (**SEE NOTE BELOW)

 
**If your child cannot mask completely out of the house, they must stay home for 10 days total. This includes children <2yo or any school/daycare setting where they may be around others unmasked (including indoor lunch).
 
 
COVID EXPOSURE inside of home (possible ongoing exposure):
 
The above guidelines apply from date of LAST exposure. If the positive individual is NOT masked inside the house (either too young or too difficult) for their full 10 days, then the exposure guidelines apply starting on their 10th day.
 
IF the positive individual can isolate completely, then start counting the day after the last exposure ---USE THE ABOVE GUIDELINES
 
IF the positive individual can completely mask inside the house but is not isolated, start counting their exposure on their 6th day ---- USE THE ABOVE GUIDELINES
 
IF the positive individual can NOT completely mask or isolate inside the house
 **A fully vaccinated parent or sibling who can mask outside the home may continue going to school/work as long as fully masked for 20 days total.
**A non-vaccinated (or not boosted) parent or sibling must stay home for 5 days from LAST exposure, which is 15 days after the positive individuals symptoms began or positive test
