District Health Department No. 10 issues statement on confusion regarding quarantine duration

The only way close contacts can be excluded from quarantine is if a person has contracted the virus within the last 90 days or has been fully vaccinated for at least two weeks before being exposed. They also say that showing proof of anti-bodies or a negative coronavirus test will reduce or end quarantine.  

District Health Department 10 says if you were identified as a close contact on or after Apr. 5th, you need to quarantine for 14 days, even if you received a letter from Trace-Force. For ten days, Trace-Force has been sending out letters telling people they need to quarantine for just ten days instead of the CDC recommendation of 14.

The health department states that schools and businesses should follow the new guidance. However,  Trace-Force, the contact tracing platform, did not update their system to the 14-day quarantine rule until Apr. 15th.
