Isolation and Quarantine Calculator

Use this calculator if you or someone you have come in contact with has tested positive for COVID-19. Select the option below that describes your situation, enter the date, and this calculator will give you guidance on when your self-isolation or quarantine may end.

Regardless of your vaccination status, if you are symptomatic and have tested positive for COVID-19, then you must isolate for 5 days from the date your symptoms began. If your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can end isolation, but you should wear a mask around others for 5 additional days, avoid travel if possible, and avoid places where you can't wear a mask like a restaurant.

If you still have a fever or if your symptoms haven't improved, you should continue to isolate until your fever is gone for at least 24 hours and your other symptoms are improving.

If you can't wear a mask, you should isolate for a full 10 days.

mm/dd/yyyy

If your symptoms have improved and 24 hours have elapsed without a fever without the use of medication, your last FULL day of isolation is: {{sym | add(5)}}. Your isolation ENDS on: {{sym | add(6)}}. On this date, you may resume most of your usual activities, but you should still take precautions for 5 more days to protect those around you: wear a mask around others, avoid travel if possible, and avoid places where you can't wear a mask like a restaurant.

Your isolation can end on {{sym | add(6)}}

You should take additional precautions through {{sym | add(10)}} (returning to normal activities {{sym | add(11)}})

Regardless of your vaccination status, if you do not have symptoms and have tested positive for COVID-19 then you must isolate for 5 days from the day you took your test. You can end isolation after 5 days if you still have no symptoms, but you should continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days, avoid travel if possible, and avoid places where you can't wear a mask like a restaurant. If you can't wear a mask, you should isolate for a full 10 days.

Note: If symptoms develop, you should immediately isolate for at least 5 days after the date when symptoms began.

mm/dd/yyyy

If you have no symptoms, your last FULL day of isolation is: {{asym | add(5)}}. Your isolation ENDS on: {{asym | add(6)}}. On this date, you may resume most of your usual activities, but you should still take precautions for 5 more days to protect those around you: wear a mask around others, avoid travel if possible, and avoid places where you can't wear a mask like a restaurant.

Note: If symptoms develop, you should immediately isolate for at least 5 days after the date when symptoms began.

Your isolation can end on {{asym | add(6)}}

You should take additional precautions through {{asym | add(10)}} (returning to normal activities {{asym | add(11)}})

Who needs to quarantine?

You should stay home and quarantine for 5 days, monitor for symptoms, and get tested at least 5 days after exposure.

After ending quarantine, for 5 additional days, you should wear a mask around others, delay travel, avoid persons at high-risk for severe illness, and avoid places where you can't wear a mask.

If you are unable to wear a mask when around others, you should continue to quarantine for a full 10 days.

If symptoms occur, you should immediately isolate until a negative test confirms symptoms are not attributable to COVID-19. If you test positive for COVID-19, you should isolate for 5 days from the date of the positive test result.

Who does NOT need to quarantine?

  • Persons who are up to date with vaccinations (completed a primary series of COVID-19 vaccine AND have received all recommended vaccine doses, including boosters[1] and additional primary shots for some immunocompromised people).
  • Persons who had confirmed COVID-19 within the last 90 days.

You do not need to quarantine. But you should wear a well-fitted mask around others for 10 days and get tested at least 5 days after the exposure (recently recovered persons do not need to test).

If symptoms occur, or if you test positive, you should immediately isolate for at least 5 days after the date when symptoms began or the date of the positive test result.

mm/dd/yyyy

If you are 5 or older and completed a primary series of COVID-19 vaccine but have NOT received a booster shot when eligible, OR if you have not completed a primary vaccine series:

  • Quarantine can end after 5 days on {{exposure | add(6)}} as long as you don't have symptoms.
  • You should get tested on or after {{exposure | add(5)}} and take additional precautions for an additional 5 days, through {{exposure | add(10)}}. You should wear a mask around others, delay travel, avoid persons at high-risk for severe illness, and avoid places where you can't wear a mask.
  • If you are unable to wear a mask when around others, you should continue to quarantine for a full 10 days through {{exposure | add(10)}} (returning to normal activities on {{exposure | add(11)}}).
  • If symptoms occur, you should immediately isolate until a negative test confirms symptoms are not attributable to COVID-19.
  • If you test positive for COVID-19, you should isolate for 5 days from the date of the positive test result.

If you have received all recommended COVID-19 vaccine doses OR if you are younger than 5 years old but are fully vaccinated OR if you recovered from COVID-19 in the past 3 months and you do not have any symptoms:

  • You do not need to quarantine, but you should get tested on or after {{exposure | add(5)}} and wear a well-fitting mask around others through {{exposure | add(10)}}.
  • If symptoms occur, or if you test positive, you should immediately isolate for at least 5 days after the date when symptoms began or the date of the positive test result.
