Updated CDC and KDHE Quarantine Guidance

On December 27, 2021, the CDC shortened its recommended isolation and quarantine periods for confirmed positive cases of Covid and well as cases of exposure to confirmed positive cases of Covid-19. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (“KDHE”) has adopted the CDC’s guidance as set forth below:

People with lab confirmed COVID-19 infections (regardless of vaccination status). 

  • Stay home for 5 days.
  • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days and you are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications, you can leave your house.
  • Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.

People who are boosted who are Close Contacts of a person with confirmed COVID-19 infection; people who are fully vaccinated with Pfizer/Moderna within last 6 months who are Close Contacts of a person with confirmed COVID-19 infection; and people who are fully vaccinated with Johnson & Johnson within last 2 months who are Close Contacts of a person with confirmed COVID-19 infection.

  • Wear a mask around others for 10 days.
  • Test on day 5, if possible.
