CDC's Quarantine Calculator
Visit the CDC’s “Quarantine and Isolation” calculator HERE.

This calculator provides up-to-date guidance on when to quarantine or isolate, dependent on information you input.  The calculator is not a substitute for a medical professional’s opinion, but if you have tested positive or suspect you have been exposed to COVID-19, it is a great tool to help determine what your next steps should be.

As a reminder, please be sure to email your status and need to quarantine/isolate to Mitchell’s COVID response email at
