 Timeframe for Self-Isolation/Quarantine based on Testing Result 

The purpose of quarantine is to keep people who might have been exposed (but not sick) to COVID-19 away from others. Isolation is to keep sick people and those infected with the COVID-19 virus away from those who are not infected. Self-quarantine/isolation are voluntary practices to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

It is expected that any person getting a COVID-19 diagnostic test (nasal swab or saliva) will self-quarantine after specimen collection AND are advised of the results of their test, unless otherwise directed by those administering the test. These recommendations are not for individuals who got serologic test (antibody). Depending on the test result, see below for the length of time that the individual should self-isolate/self-quarantine.

Call your healthcare professional if you have concerns about COVID-19 and your underlying health conditions. Stay up to date on the current situation as it evolves. Some reliable sources are New Jersey Poison Information and Education System hotline at 211 or 1-800-962-1253, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at www.cdc.gov, the World Health Organization at www.who.int, the New Jersey Department of Health at COVID19.nj.gov.
