Caregivers and anyone who has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 should stay home, except in limited circumstances. System Offices employees caring for someone who has COVID-19 should follow the guidance on this page for a close contact based on their vaccine status.
Quarantine periods should be calculated based on the last day of close contact to someone with COVID-19. If exposure is ongoing, quarantine periods for caregivers should be calculated based on the last day of isolation for the person receiving care.
System Offices employees caring for someone sick at home should send an email with your contact information to the System Offices Infectious Disease Response Team (IDRT) for additional guidance.
