DHS follows CDC, reduces COVID quarantine period

You will not have to quarantine as long after being a close contact with someone with a positive COVID-19 test under the new Wisconsin Department of Health Services guidance issued on Friday. Beginning on Monday, close contacts of someone who tested positive for COVID-19 can come out of quarantine after 10 days without being tested and seven days with a negative test result. Door County Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise hopes that under this new guidance announced by the Centers for Disease Control earlier this week that more people will follow the protocol.

Wisconsin DHS still recommends people monitor their symptoms for a full 14 days after being considered a close contact.
