CDC Updates Isolation and Quarantine Period  

In light of what we’ve learned about COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released revised guidance today around Isolation and Quarantine timeframes. Marin County Public Health and the California Department of Public Health are aligning with the new guidance.  Coronavirus.MarinHHS.org and related education materials will be updated this week to reflect the new guidance.  

The new guidelines are as follows:   

If you test positive for COVID-19 (Isolate) 

Everyone, regardless of vaccination status should:  

  • Stay home for 5 days. 

        - If you have no symptoms or your symptoms fully resolved after 5 days, you can leave your house 
        - If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves. 

  • Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days 

 

If you were exposed to someone with COVID-19 (Quarantine) 

If you: 

  • Have been boosted OR 
  • Completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within the last 6 months OR 
  • Completed the primary series of Johnson & Johnson vaccine within the last 2 months 

THEN 

     - Wear a mask around others for 10 days 
     - Test on day 5
     - If you develop symptoms, get tested as soon as possible and stay home 

If you: 

  • Completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine over 6 months ago and are not boosted OR 
  • Completed the primary series of Johnson & Johnson over 2 months ago and are not boosted OR 
  • Are unvaccinated 

THEN 

     - Stay home for 5 days. After that, continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days
     - If you are unable to quarantine, you must wear a mask for 10 days 
     - Test on day 5
     - If you develop symptoms, get tested and stay home.

Celebrate Safely: New Year’s Edition Part I 

The holiday season is nearing a close and in less than a week we will be welcoming the year 2022. Preparations for New Year’s gatherings and celebrations are becoming a focus for many in our community. With the rising threat of the Omicron variant in Marin County, it is paramount to celebrate the beginning of the new year as safely as possible. Thankfully, we have a toolkit of resources available to keep COVID-19 away from events with family or friends.  

  • Get boosted: Everyone who is eligible for a COVID-19 booster dose should receive one if they are planning to attend a New Year’s Eve gathering.  
  • Get tested: An extra layer of safety we can all do is get COVID-19 tested 3-5 days before and after the celebration. If symptoms arise, get tested immediately and quarantine until you know the results. If you are exposed to someone who is COVID-19 positive, follow CDC quarantine guidance based on your vaccination level. 
  • Wear a maskMasks are strongly recommended in private gatherings, especially if the vaccination status of every attendee is unknown. They are also required in nearly all indoor public spaces, regardless of vaccination status.  
  • Stay home if sick: Self-care and conscientiousness towards others are more important than attending a gathering if you’re under the weather. Take care of your health by staying home if you are feeling COVID-19 symptoms.  

Learn more about how to stay safe and stop potential spreads in higher-risk situations such as traveling, gathering, and dining out, by going to our Celebrate Safely page. Find vaccination opportunities in Marin by visiting our Vaccine Finder page. COVID-19 testing resources are available on our Testing page.
