Asymptomatic individuals who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do not need to quarantine after exposure to COVID-19. Fully vaccinated individuals exposed to COVID-19 who are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 must isolate themselves and should be clinically evaluated for COVID-19 and tested for COVID-19, if indicated. This guidance applies to all fully vaccinated people. However, particularly when a school nurse has identified someone as a close contact of a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, the individual will need to be cleared by the local health department.
Individuals should consult with their healthcare provider, if they have questions about their individual situation, such as immunocompromising conditions or other concerns.
