COVID-19 Safety Response Decision Tree and Levels (Click to enlarge)
Take steps to care for yourself and help protect others in your home and community.
Quarantine is used to keep 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. People in quarantine should stay home, separate themselves from others, monitor their health, and follow directions from their state or local health department.
