  • Schools, daycares, and other childcare settings.
  • Confinement facilities.

As more information becomes available from the CDC, specific guidance for the above individuals and settings will be posted on this website.

People who leave isolation after 5 days should be fever free and with improving symptoms. They must wear a mask at all times when around others and must eat in a space separate from others. Individuals with COVID should not return to work unless they have a room to eat by themselves. Employers cannot require individuals with COVID to return to work if they cannot provide a safe space for them to eat without exposing others.
