The quarantine period starts on the last day the person was known to have had contact with a person who tests positive. The quarantine may end after 14 days only if the individual was symptom-free the entire time.
· Isolated - Individuals with symptoms who: were screened and are at home, had a positive test or have a probable diagnosis.
