If have had close contact with someone else who has COVID-19, you do not have to quarantine if all of the following are true:
- You are fully vaccinated (it’s been two or more weeks since you got your second vaccination);
- It has been fewer than three months since you got your second vaccination; and
- You have had no symptoms since you were exposed.
If you have had close contact with someone else who has COVID-19 and all three of these are not true, or if you are a patient in a hospital or resident living in a healthcare setting, you should continue to follow current quarantine guidance. All other guidelines should continue to be followed.
You should still wear a mask, practice social distancing (staying at least 6 feet apart) and continue to wash your hands regularly. (https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/files/20_Family%20quarantine_12-4-20.pdf).
