What is the difference between quarantine and isolation?


Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Someone in self-quarantine stays separated from others, and they limit movement outside of their home or current place. A person may have been exposed to the virus without knowing it (for example, when traveling or out in the community), its possible to have the virus without feeling symptoms. Quarantine helps limit further spread of COVID-19.

If you need to self-quarantine please use the Home Quarantine Instructions Document created by the Los Angeles Department of Public Health outlining steps one should take when to limit their exposure to others. 


Isolation is used to separate sick people from healthy people. People who are in isolation should stay home. In the home, anyone sick should separate themselves from others by staying in a specific “sick” bedroom or space and using a different bathroom (if possible).

If you need to self-isolate please use the Home Isolation Instructions Document created by the Los Angeles Department of Public Health outlining steps one should take when to limit their exposure to others.
