Individuals are asked to quarantine if they have been in close contact with someone that has COVID-19. For details on what that means and what to do please see the information below. A printable PDFversion of this document is also available.
** Hyperlinks are accessible only in the PDF version.**
Note: The standard length of quarantine is 14 days. Since your risk of developing COVID-19 is less than 10% after ten days of quarantine, a shorter 10 day quarantine may be possible. If this shorter period of time is the choice, then on days 11-14, you may resume your normal activities but must continue to monitor for symptoms of illness and wear a mask whenever you are in a room with other people. If you live or work with vulnerable individuals (including older adults or individuals who are immunocompromised), you should follow the standard 14 days of self-quarantine to protect them. Currently, both the Jackson County Health Department and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services do not advise testing on day 5-7 to shorten the quarantine period.
