LA County Department of Public Health Announces Change in Home Quarantine Instructions Effective Dec
The Los Ángeles County Department of Public Health recently reduced the previous 14-day quarantine period mandate to 10 days, based on CDC Guidance.
If you have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, you must quarantine for 10 full days from your last contact with the infected person. You can end your quarantine after Day 10 if you never had any symptoms and you take the following precautions:
From Day 11 through Day 14:
· Be extra careful. Wear a face covering (including those in your household), social distance, wash hands often, and encourage those in your household to do the same.
· Check for COVID-19 symptoms every day.
· Keep away from high-risk people for the full 14 days.
· Official Home Quarantine Instructions for Close Contacts to COVID-19 can be found by clicking here.
If you don’t know when you were exposed to the infected person and you received a Public Health Emergency Quarantine Order, you can end your quarantine 10 days after the date the order was issued (as long as you don’t have symptoms.)
If you do get symptoms, isolate at home, and follow the Home Quarantine Instructions for Close Contacts to COVID-19: Click Here
