Please note: New state guidance set to reduce isolation time to five days
With an end declared to California's COVID-19 state of emergency, state health officials have announced updates to several pandemic-era public health orders related to vaccines, masking, isolation and quarantine. One big change that will impact schools is reduced isolation time for individuals recovering from COVID-19. Beginning May 13, a person who has tested positive needs to isolate at home for just five days, rather than 10, as long as they are feeling well, have improving symptoms and are fever-free for 24 hours.
