COVID-19 Recommended Minimum Quarantine Timeframes Update

NJDOH has updated the “Recommended Minimum Quarantine Timeframes” document, posted online at https://www.state.nj.us/health/cd/documents/topics/NCOV/COVID_updated_quarantine_timeframes.pdf to include new CDC recommendations for fully vaccinated persons and including special considerations for healthcare providers and settings.

On February 10, CDC updated the “Interim Clinical Considerations for Use of mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines Currently Authorized in the United States.” Fully vaccinated persons who meet criteria will no longer be required to quarantine following an exposure to someone with COVID-19. Additional considerations for patients and residents in healthcare settings are provided.
