  • Updated isolation and quarantine recommendations for the general public are now in alignment with timeframe recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
  • Additional mitigation measures, including testing to exit isolation and quarantine and improved masking are included.
  • Clarification that fully-vaccinated persons who are booster-eligible but have not yet received their booster dose are now recommended to quarantine.
