Updated Isolation and Quarantine Recommendations

MDH reviewed CDC: Quarantine and Isolation and updated our website to align with their new guidance. The updated guidance applies to the general population, including some settings like schools; however, the guidance does not apply to health care settings, correctional institutions, or homeless shelters.

If You Are Sick or Test Positive
Information on what to do if you are sick or test positive and need to stay home and away from others (isolation).

  • Learn more about the steps you should take if you have COVID-19 symptoms, what happens after you test positive, and how long to isolate.

Close Contacts and Quarantine
Information on what to do if you were in close contact with someone with COVID-19 and need to stay home and away from others (quarantine).

  • Learn more about the steps you should take after an exposure, who does not need to quarantine, and how long to quarantine.

These updated recommendations come as the Omicron variant is now rapidly spreading throughout the United States causing very high case rates. This new isolation and quarantine guidance emphasizes the continued need to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 transmission.

Some MDH materials and guidance documents are still being updated, so more will be available in the coming days.

MDH continues to recommend layered prevention strategies to slow the spread. Minnesotans should get vaccinated, get boosted when eligible, wear masks in indoor public places, get tested when recommended, wash hands frequently, and stay home if you are sick.
