What is the difference between isolation and quarantine?

Per the Center for Disease Control, Isolation and quarantine help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease.

Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.

Time Period: students in isolation or quarantine will need to remain for 10-14 days. Even with negative tests, each person's isolation or quarantine time period will remain for the entire 10-14 days. If you have any questions regarding the length of a isolation or quarantine period please contact the Ashe Center.

Always remember to call the Ashe Center's COVID Hotline at 310-206-6217.
