Home Quarantine Safety
Persons who are showing symptoms of COVID-19, fever, cough or shortness of breath, are advised to quarantine themselves at home and call the doctor. Learn more about additional recommended precautions for household members, intimate partners and caregivers in a non-healthcare setting.
•Monitor symptoms carefully. If the patient is getting sicker, call his or her healthcare provider and tell them that the patient has laboratory-confirmed COVID-19. If the patient has a medical emergency and you need to call 911, notify the dispatch personnel that the patient may have, or is being evaluated for COVID-19.
•Household members should stay in another room or be separated from the patient as much as possible.
•Prohibit visitors who do not have an essential need to be in the home.
•Perform hand hygiene frequently. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60 to 95% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry.
•Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
•Wear a disposable facemask and gloves. Throw out disposable facemasks and gloves after using them. Do not reuse.
•Avoid sharing household items such as dishes, drinking glasses, eating utensil, towels and bedding with the patient. Wash laundry thoroughly.
•Clean all “high-touch” surfaces, such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables, every day.
•Discuss any additional questions with your state or local health department or healthcare provider. Check available hours when contacting your local health department.
