If I have been vaccinated, do I need to quarantine after being exposed to COVID-19?

Vaccinated persons who are exposed to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 are not required to quarantine if they meet all of the following criteria:

  • Are fully vaccinated (i.e., ≥2 weeks following receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose series, or ≥2 weeks following receipt of one dose of a single-dose vaccine).
  • Have not had any symptoms since the current COVID-19 exposure.

If any of the above criteria are not met, persons should continue to follow current quarantine guidance after exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19.

*However, if you live or work in a correctional or detention facility or a homeless shelter and are around someone who has COVID-19, you should still get tested, even if you don’t have symptoms.
