Individuals identified as close contacts have several quarantine options:
Close contacts who are less than 3 feet apart for more than 15 minutes to a positive case:
- Quarantine at home for 10 days from date of exposure
- Quarantine at home for 7 days from date of exposure, if the contact receives a negative viral (PCR or antigen) test performed at least 5 days after exposure.
- Remain in school and participate in extracurricular activities if they test negative daily for 7 days from the date of exposure (and the test is less than 24 hours before coming to school). Wearing a face covering indoors, as much as possible, is recommended for 7 days.
Close contacts who are identified between 3 and 6 feet apart for more than 15 minutes to a positive case:
- Do not need to quarantine. Contact may remain in school and participate in extracurricular activities as long as they have no symptoms. The contact should be notified of the potential exposure and the contact should self‐monitor for symptoms for 14 days.
- Wearing a face covering indoors is recommended, as much as possible, either for 10 days or for 7 days if the contact receives a negative viral (PCR or antigen) test performed at least 5 days after exposure.
Quarantine is not necessary for the following persons:
- Students or staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 3 months.
- Students and staff who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 defined as 2 weeks or more following receipt of the second dose using a 2-dose series or receipt of one dose using a single-dose vaccine.
Outbreak: The Macomb County Health Department defines an outbreak as three or more cases with a link by place and time indicating a shared exposure outside of a household.
Contact Tracing: A strategy for slowing the spread of disease in which public health workers communicate with infectious people to identify their contacts. They then follow up with those contacts to provide guidance on how to quarantine themselves and what to do if they develop symptoms of disease.
Close Contact: A person who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period with or without a mask. A person with COVID-19 is considered contagious starting 2 days (48 hours) before they started having symptoms. If they are asymptomatic, or never have symptoms, they are considered contagious starting 2 days (48 hours) before their COVID-19 test was performed. People may also be close contacts if they were somehow exposed to droplets from an infected person (sneezed or coughed on).
Quarantine: The practice of keeping someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms. Since close contacts are not yet known to be infected, the contacts to those contacts do not need to be in quarantine and do not need to be identified or contacted.
