Isolation and Quarantine


Isolation and Quarantine

Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19 or exposed to COVID-19?

Diagnosed with COVID-19
If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, even if you don't have symptoms and are up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccines, you will need to separate yourself from other people in your home, also called "isolation." You will also self-monitor until you are no longer able to spread COVID-19 to others. 

Exposed to COVID-19
If you had contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 (at home, work, school, or anywhere else), you may be at risk of infection. It is important to self-quarantine and self-monitor to protect yourself, your family, and your community. Anyone who has been exposed to COVID-19 is encouraged to get tested at least five days after last contact. If you develop symptoms during your quarantine period, get tested immediately and stay home and isolate yourself from others.

On Tuesday, December 28 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated COVID-19 isolation and quarantine recommendations. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) accepted these updated recommendations. Please view this CDC website with additional information about the updated isolation and quarantine recommendations.
