Quarantine and Isolation Calculator

The CDC recently added a quarantine and isolation calculator to their Quarantine and Isolation page. This feature is helpful if you have tested positive for COVID-19, have symptoms, or been in close contact with someone with COVID-19. The questionnaire will lead you through a series of questions to help determine if you need to quarantine or isolate, when to get tests, and how long you should wear a mask when around others. 

Visit the CDC’s Quarantine and Isolation page for more information.
