This article contains important information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding quarantining after a COVID-19 exposure.

What Is a Quarantine?

A quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. It helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with a virus without feeling symptoms. People in quarantine should stay home, separate themselves from others, monitor their health and follow directions from their state or local health department.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the use of masks and face coverings in public, and CDC Director Robert Redfield expanded on the topic during a discussion hosted by medical journal JAMA.

Redfield stated, "If we could get everybody to wear a mask right now, I think in four, six, eight weeks we could bring this epidemic under control." During the discussion, Redfield noted that “we are not defenseless against COVID-19,” stating that “cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus— particularly when used universally within a community setting. All Americans have a responsibility to protect themselves, their families and their communities.’’
