April 11​​, 2022 - Quarantine and Isolation Requirements


Dear Colleagues,

On April 6, CDPH updated the Guidance on Isolation and Quarantine of the General Public​. As a result, the district revised the COVID-19 clearance requirements.

  1. All individuals with COVID-19 symptoms, regardless of vaccination status or previous infection, should self-isolate and get a PCR test as soon as possible to determine infection status. If not tested, they should continue isolating for 10 days after the day of symptom onset.
    • The symptomatic individual should remain in isolation while waiting for testing results.
    • If the PCR test is negative, they may end isolation after 24 hours have passed without fever without using fever-reducing medicine and symptoms are not present or resolving.
    • For symptomatic persons who have tested positive within the previous 90 days, using an antigen test is preferred. The individual should continue self-isolation and retest in 1-2 days if testing negative with an antigen test, particularly if tested during the first 1-2 days of symptoms.
  2. Individuals who test positive, regardless of vaccination status, previous infection, or lack of symptoms, shall self-isolate for at least 5 days after the start of symptoms (or after the date of the first positive test if there are no symptoms).
    • Isolation can end after day 5 if symptoms are not present or are resolving and the individual tests negative on day 5 or later.
    • If the individual is unable to test, chooses not to test, or tests positive on Day 5 (or later), isolation can end after Day 10 if fever-free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medications.
    • If fever is present, isolation should be continued until 24 hours after the fever resolves.
    • If symptoms other than fever are not resolving, continue to isolate until symptoms are resolving or until after Day 10.
    • The individual should wear a well-fitting mask around others for a total of 10 days, especially in indoor settings.
  3. CDPH also changed the close contact definition. Individuals sharing the same indoor airspace, e.g., home, clinic waiting room, airplane, etc., for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period during an infected person's infectious period is considered a close contact. Asymptomatic close contacts don't need to quarantine. Persons infected within the prior 90 days do not need to be tested, quarantined, or excluded from work unless symptoms develop.
    • Close contact should get tested within 3-5 days after the last exposure.
    • Close contacts should wear a well-fitting mask around others for a total of 10 days
    • If symptoms develop, test again and self-isolate. If the test result is positive, follow isolation recommendations for positive cases.

Should you need any additional information, please feel free to contact me. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Beiwei Tu, ARM, CIH, CSP
Director of Risk Management
