If Known Exposure to a Positive COVID Case:

1. If your child has been exposed to a known positive COVID case and has symptoms but tested negative themselves, then they need to quarantine for 14 days from the last date of exposure to the positive case.

a. For example, if Patient A was exposed to Patient B (who had COVID) on 3/1/2021 but Patient A’s test came back negative, then Patient A would need to quarantine until 3/15/2021.

2. If your child has been exposed to a known positive COVID case and has symptoms and tested positive, then they need to quarantine for 10 days from the first day of symptoms.

a. For example, if Patient A was exposed to Patient B (who had COVID) on 3/1/2021 and Patient A started getting a runny nose on 3/3/2021 and tested positive for COVID on 3/5/2021, then Patient A needs to quarantine until 3/13/2021.

3. If your child has been exposed to a known COVID case but does not have symptoms and had a negative COVID test 5 days after exposure, then they can return to normal activities 2 days after their negative test.

a. For example, if Patient A was exposed to Patient B (who had COVID) on 3/1/2021 and Patient A tested negative for COVID on 3/6/2021, then they can return to normal activities on 3/8/2021.

4. If your child has been exposed to a known COVID case but does not have symptoms and had a negative test within 1-4 days after exposure, then they need to quarantine for 10 days from the last exposure, unless it is a household or continuous exposure where the patient with COVID is not isolated from the rest of the family (see next bullet if it is a household exposure).

a. For example, if Patient A was exposed to Patient B (who had COVID) on 3/1/2021 and Patient A tested negative on 3/3/2021, then Patient A needs to quarantine until 3/11/2021 unless Patient B is a family member that has not been isolated from the rest of the family.

5. If your child has been exposed to a known COVID case but does not have symptoms and had a negative test at any point within the positive case’s quarantine and the exposure is to a household member that is unable to isolate, then they need to quarantine for 10 days from the last day of the positive case’s last day of quarantine.

a. For example, if Patient A was exposed their family member, Patient B who tested positive on 3/1/2021, and Patient A tested negative on 3/3/2021, then Patient A needs to quarantine until 3/21/2021.

6. If your child has been exposed to a known COVID case but does not have symptoms but does have a positive COVID test themselves, then the patient needs to quarantine for 10 days from the positive test date.

a. For example, if Patient A was exposed to Patient B (who had COVID) on 3/1/2021 and Patient A tested positive on 3/6/2021, then Patient A needs to quarantine until 3/16/2021.

If No Known Exposure to a Positive COVID Case:

1. If your child has not had a known exposure to a positive COVID case but has had symptoms and tested negative for COVID, then your child can return to normal activity after 24 hours of being fever free with no medication and all other symptoms improving.

a. For example, if Patient A develops a sore throat on 3/1/2021 and tested negative for COVID on 3/2/2021, then they can return to normal activity 24 hours after Patient A’s symptoms improve, including being fever free without medication for 24 hours.

2. If your child has not had a known exposure to a positive COVID case, but has had symptoms and has tested positive for COVID themselves, then they need to quarantine for 10 days from the first day of symptoms.

a. For example, if Patient A develops a cough on 3/1/2021 and tested positive for COVID on 3/3/2021, then they need to quarantine until 3/11/2021.

Note:

- If symptoms are continuous or worsening, call back for a follow up appointment.

- Day 1 of symptoms is the first day that any symptom began, regardless of when the fever may have started.
