Isolation Rules Change on March 9

by 22q Administrator

Here are the latest rules for isolation regarding COVID-19 exposure:

Individuals who don’t live with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 but were identified as a close contact (being within two metres of someone for longer than 15 minutes) of someone who tested positive: no one will need to self-isolate.

Individuals who are immunocompromised are advised to isolate for a 10-day period. Then for the next 10 days, they should take additional personal safety precautions (such as wearing masks and staying away from highest-risk settings).

Individuals who came in close contact with someone that tested positive for COVID-19 who lives in the same household, those 18 and older with three COVID-19 vaccine doses, those who tested positive for COVID-19 within 90 days, and those under 18 who have received two vaccine doses will no longer be required to isolate.
