Someone in my household was exposed (as a close contact) to someone who tested positive for COVID-19. What should I do?

That exposed person in the household should self-quarantine while monitoring for symptoms. Follow appropriate precautions for cleaning, hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette. If you receive any instructions from that person's employer or the local health department, follow them carefully.

Others in the home are not required to quarantine. If anyone in the home experiences symptoms, isolate and get tested immediately.
