Quarantine vs. Isolation

I have included a link to the Utah Department of Health COVID-19 page. This link has helpful information on the differences between quarantine and isolation due to COVID-19.


Please remember that isolation and self-isolation are for individuals who have tested positive or have symptoms of COVID-19. Those who test positive will work with the local Health Department to determine the period of isolation and when the isolation is complete.

ONLY individuals who have been in “close contact” (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes) of a person who has tested positive, will be asked to quarantine for 14 days beginning from the time of exposure. If you develop COVID-19 symptoms during quarantine, please contact your Primary Health Care Provider for more information.

The Bear River Head Start Point of Contact (POC) will work the Health Department in your area to determine individuals who may need to quarantine. Children in quarantine will receive virtual “Center At Home” lessons until the quarantine period is complete.
