Update - CDC Guidelines

On December 2, 2020, the CDC released additional quarantine options. While local public health authorities make the final decisions about how long quarantine should last based on local conditions and needs, the CDC now recommends two (2) additional options for how long quarantine should last:

Based on local availability of viral testing, for people without symptoms quarantine can end either:

  • on day ten (10) without testing; or
  • on day seven (7) after receiving a negative test result.

At this time, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment has not updated its quarantine guidelines to match the new CDC recommendations.

The CDC continues to endorse quarantine for fourteen (14) days and recognizes that any quarantine shorter than fourteen (14) days balances reduced burden against a small possibility of spreading the virus. CDC will continue to evaluate new information and update recommendations as needed.
