    Updated CDC Guidance on Isolation and Quarantine

    January 6, 2022
    As COVID-19 cases surge in Arkansas, the CDC has updated its guidance on isolation and quarantine for the second time in two weeks. In that guidance, anyone who has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 should quarantine unless they have been fully vaccinated, including all boosters, or had a confirmed positive COVID-19 test within the last 90 days. Individuals who are fully vaccinated should wear a mask when around others and monitor their symptoms for 10 days from the date of the last close contact with the infected person. These individuals should also get tested at least five days after the last close contact. Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 during the previous 90 days and come in close contact with someone with COVID-19 need only wear a mask when around others for 10 days. A close contact is defined as being less than six feet away from an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period.
