Types of Quarantine
County-Mandated Quarantine: Individuals that are identified as a close contact of an infected person are placed in county-mandated quarantine for 10 days and monitored for symptoms. If symptoms appear, the individual would be tested, placed in isolation, and if appropriate contact tracing of that individual would be undertaken.
Precautionary Quarantine: Individuals that were in close contact with a person being tested for cause (presenting symptoms consistent with COVID), will be placed in precautionary quarantine while the evaluation is being completed. During this time, the individual in precautionary quarantine will also be monitored for symptoms. If symptoms appear, the individual would be tested and placed in precautionary isolation.
Travel Quarantine: New York state has guidelines for traveling, quarantine, and testing. The most up-to-date information is available on the New York state website.
