If an individual has been vaccinated, they do not need to quarantine after being exposed to someone with COVID-19 if they:
- Are fully vaccinated and it has been at least two weeks since their last dose AND
- Have not experienced symptoms since exposure
However, they should still monitor for symptoms, get tested within 3-5 days of exposure, and wear a mask in public indoor settings for 10 days after exposure or until they receive a negative test result. They should also consider masking at home if they live with someone who is unvaccinated or at increased risk for getting very sick from COVID-19. If they do not meet the criteria above, they should continue to follow CDC quarantine guidance.
