What to do if you live with someone that has tested positive for COVID-19.
It is very important for people with COVID-19 to remain apart from other people, if possible, even if they are living together. If separation of the person with COVID-19 from others that they live with is not possible, the other people will be repeatedly exposed until that person is no longer able to spread the virus to other people. In this situation, there are precautions you can take to limit the spread of COVID-19:
• The person with COVID-19 and everyone they live with should wear a well-fitting mask inside the home.
• If possible, one person should care for the person with COVID-19 to limit the number of people who are in close contact with the infected person.
• If you are not up to date* on COVID-19 vaccines and have ongoing exposure to COVID-19, you should:
• Begin quarantine immediately and continue to quarantine throughout the isolation period of the person with COVID-19.
• Continue to quarantine for an additional 5 days starting the day after the end of isolation for the person with COVID-19.
• Get tested at least 5 days after the end of isolation of the infected person that lives with them. If you test negative, you can leave the home but should continue to wear a well-fitting mask when around others at home and in public until 10 days after the end of isolation for the person with COVID-19.
• Isolate immediately if you develop symptoms of COVID-19 or test positive for COVID-19, even if you don’t have symptoms.

*Up to date means a person has received all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including any booster dose(s) when eligible.
• Anyone ages 12 or older and who has received all CDC recommended COVID-19 vaccine doses, including boosters if eligible and additional primary shots for some immunocompromised people.
• Anyone ages 5-11 years old who has completed the primary series of COVID-19 vaccines.
• Anyone who has had confirmed COVID-19 within the last 90 days.
