KANSAS Updated Isolation and Quarantine Guidance for Vaccinated Individuals

FOR KANSAS CLIENTS ONLY

The quarantine guidance for vaccinated individuals exposed to a positive case of COVID-19 depends on if the exposure was from someone within the household. If the exposure comes from a household contact, the KDHE requires that the fully vaccinated individual get tested 3-5 days after the initial exposure and re-test again 7-10 days after exposure. The KDHE guidance also states that fully vaccinated individuals that are close household contacts with a confirmed or suspected case should mask in indoor settings for 14 days after their last exposure. While the KDHE recommends this practice for all exposures, it is specifically required if the exposure comes from a household contact. Fully vaccinated individuals do not have to quarantine while waiting for test results after exposure to COVID-19 as long as they remain without symptoms.

If a vaccinated individual tests positive for COVID-19, they must follow the quarantine guidance for a lab-confirmed case, which is as follows:

  • 10 days from the onset of symptoms or
  • 72 hours after the fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medication AND there has been a significant improvement in symptoms
  • Whichever is longer

What our clients say...

Kansas Masonic Foundation

Robert A. Shively, CAE, CFRE
Executive Director 
Kansas Masonic Foundation

"When I joined the Kansas Masonic Foundation as their Executive Director four years ago I knew that as a small organization I needed professional human resources advice from an outside advisor.

Being an organization of only five staff members, it was impossible to provide the level of ongoing consultation needed internally.

I interviewed a number of agencies and immediately realized when I interviewed HR Partners that the talent and expertise they had on staff would be a perfect team for our organization.  I especially appreciated the 'legal' help and advice they could provide as well. I am thoroughly satisfied with our partnership and am confident it will last for many years to come!"
