Quarantining means keeping physically separate from others. If you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, you should quarantine for 14 days. People with COVID-19 can infect others before they start to feel sick or may never have any symptoms of having COVID-19. This is why it’s important to quarantine as it provides time to see if you have gotten COVID-19.
By staying away from others, you can help protect them and slow the spread of the virus. While there are times when the quarantine time can be shorter, MPS will continue to require all students to quarantine the full 14 days. This timeframe is based on the advice of the Minneapolis Health Department and other health experts. Health experts also recommend that people in quarantine get tested 5-7 days after coming into contact with some with COVID-19; however, a negative test does not shorten the quarantine time.
