If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, check with your local public health agency about the quarantine period that is most appropriate for you. A 14-day quarantine following exposure is still the gold standard, although in certain cases a shorter quarantine may be appropriate. Regardless of your quarantine length, for 14 days after exposure, you should:

  • Watch for symptoms of COVID-19.
  • If you have symptoms, immediately self-isolate and contact your local public health authority or health care provider.
  • Wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet from others, wash your hands, avoid crowds, and take other precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
  • Avoid contact with high-risk individuals.

Colorado has developed a prioritization plan that aims to vaccinate frontline healthcare workers, long-term care facility residents and other critical workforce member such as emergency medical services, firefighters, and other first responders in Phase 1. More information can be found on:
