NEW! Quarantine Guidelines from the CDC and Wisconsin Department of Health Services

**Please note: The best practice for COVID-19 prevention remains a full 14-day quarantine. The modifications are intended to be used with individuals who can reliably report their symptoms and are not in high-risk settings. There is increased risk with any modification from the 14-day quarantine. We ask and strongly recommend that all schools (students and staff), day care agencies, and other congregate settings adhere to the full 14-day quarantine.
Quarantine modifications are not acceptable for long-term care facilities.
