Persons who chose to self-quarantine as a protection from possible exposure too Covid-19 (Coronavirus) fall into two categories: Those who have coughing, fever of 100.4 or more or shortness of breath; and those who have no symptoms but may have been exposed to the virus.
Persons who have no symptoms but have chosen to self-quarantine must adhere to the same requirements as those who are experiencing symptoms with one exception. Persons with symptoms must be in telephone contact with a health care professional at least once a day to monitor their progress. Persons without symptoms should monitor their own condition and contact a health professional by telephone when they have concerns.
Quarantined persons must remain in a segregated portion of their home or apartment with no close contact with other residents and/or family members.
They should not share a bed or a bathroom with anyone else. If such sharing is unavoidable, every effort must be made to sanitize the area after every use.
They should not dine with other family members, but should have meals delivered to their room and leave trays and used dishes outside the room to be collected.
They should not leave their rooms or their homes for any reason, including shopping, recreating, or worship but may leave the area for visits with a health professional.
They should keep laundry segregated and wash clothes separately.
At all times everyone in the household must maintain strict sanitary protocols.
