Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between isolation and quarantine?

“The terms ‘quarantine’ and ‘isolation’ both refer to the act of separating a person with illness from others,” says Dr. Cowl. “But the terms are different. Quarantine is used for someone who has no symptoms, and isolation is used when someone has been confirmed to have the disease. Isolation is typically more acute than quarantine.” QUICK FACTS

What are the rules for quarantine?

Under current regulations, children over 2 years old who tested positive or were exposed to COVID should quarantine for five days, down from 10. The quarantine period remains 10 days for children under the age of 2.

When to isolate or quarantine?

Quarantine if you are not up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines. Isolate if you are sick or tested positive for COVID-19, even if you don’t have symptoms. Learn more about the public health recommendations for testing, mask use and quarantine of close contacts, like yourself, who have ongoing exposure. These recommendations differ depending on your vaccination status.

Do quarantines actually work?

Properly handled, quarantines can work (for a given value of 'work'). The larger the pool of quarantined persons, the less likely a quarantine can reduce transmission of whatever pathogen requiring quarantine. Government competence plays a part as well.
