ISOLATION & QUARANTINE

 

ISOLATION

Isolation is meant to separate those who have tested positive for COVID-19 from people who do not have the virus.​

  • Monitor symptoms

  • Avoid contact between your sick child and other members of the household.

  • Try to keep your sick child in a separate room or bathroom from the rest of the household

  • Ensure your child wears a well-fitting mask if they cannot avoid being around other members of the household

QUARANTINE

​Quarantine is for those who are partially vaccinated or unvaccinated and have had a close exposure to someone with COVID-19.

  • The last date of exposure is day 0. Stay home and away from people from day 0 to day 5

  • Watch for symptoms to develop

  • If symptoms develop, test immediately

  • If symptoms do not develop, have your child tested at least 5 days after the last exposure

IF YOUR CHILD TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19

ISOLATE - EVERYONE, REGARDLESS OF VACCINATION STATUS:

  • Stay home for 5 days
