Marin County COVID-19 Guidance for  isolation and quarantine:

Isolation is when a person with COVID-19 stays away from everyone, including the people he/she lives with, in order to avoid getting others sick. A person must isolate for at least 7 days after the first symptoms AND at least 3 days fever free (without fever-reducing medicine), and other symptoms improve.

 

Quarantine is when people who have come in contact with someone sick COVID-19, stay at home until they know if they are sick. A person must quarantine 14 days after the last contact with an infected person. If you are not able to avoid contact with a person with COVID-19, you must stay in quarantine until 14 days from when the person with COVID-19 completes their isolation period. Your isolation period is likely to be at least 21 days total.

 

Please read Marin County’s At Home Quarantine & Isolation Safety guidance document for important information and practical tips.
