CDC Quarantine and Isolation Calculator

CDC Covid Quarantee and Isolation Calculator

COVID-19 Quarantine & Isolation Calculator from the CDC

NEW, online, mobile-friendly calculator provides an easy-to-use, individualized way to help people follow CDC's quarantine and isolation guidance. The Q&I Calculator is designed to be used by individuals, healthcare providers, businesses, and organizations that are managing COVID-19 cases and close contact exposures. 

Please note that the Q&I Calculator is not for people with COVID-19 who are moderately or severely ill or those who have a weakened immune system (immunocompromised)-they should talk to their doctor about when to end isolation.  

In addition, this tool does not apply to cases and close contacts identified in certain settings. Parents with children in K-12 schools or early care and education (ECE) programs should consult the program administrator for specific isolation and quarantine guidance in their school or ECE setting

As additional information on COVID-19 transmission has evolved, MDPH has changed its protocols on case follow-up.  For updated information on guidelines for ISOLATION and QUARANTINE for close contact  refer to information LINK HERE
