If someone in your household is told to quarantine because they’ve been exposed to COVID-19, you should quarantine as well. This is especially true if you’ve been in close contact with that person. It’s possible for you to have the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.
You don’t need to quarantine if you’ve had COVID-19 in the last three months, have recovered, and do not have symptoms. Additionally, you don’t need to quarantine if you have been vaccinated, it’s been two weeks since your last dose, and you do not have symptoms. However, you should get tested within 3-5 days of exposure and wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days after exposure or until you receive a negative test result.
If you have questions about whether or not you should quarantine, contact your healthcare provider.
