FDL COVID-19 Quarantine Guidelines:

  1. If someone has symptoms and tests positive their isolation period is 10 days from start of symptoms, as long as their symptoms have improved and they don't have a fever for 24 hours before returning to work. (without taking fever reducing medication)
  2. If someone has no symptoms and tests positive, then isolation period starts from when they got their positive test. Isolation for a positive test is 10 days as above.
  3. If someone was exposed to someone with COVID-19 and has no symptoms they should quarantine for 14 days from the date of their last exposure to the positive person, even if there test is negative. This is guidance from CDC and MDH.
  4. If someone develops symptoms or tests positive during their quarantine for being a contact of a positive person, then they need to isolate for 10 days from that date. So for example someone may have started their quarantine on the 1st, but then gets symptoms on day 7 and tests positive that day then their isolation starts the 7th for 10 days.
