Quarantine Information

What is Quarantine?

Quarantine is used to keep someone who may have been exposed to COVID-19 and might be infected away from others. People in quarantine must stay home and separate themselves from others. Quarantine helps prevent the spread of disease before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected. Because most COVID-19 infections are caused by people with no symptoms, quarantining people who have been exposed to COVID-19 is essential to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Why was the Quarantine period for move-in reduced from 14 to 10 Days?

When the COVID-19 epidemic started, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended quarantining for 14 days. This is because it can take up to 14 days for people to become contagious after being exposed. However, we now know that if people do not develop symptoms for the first 10 days, the chance of them being infected and spreading the infection to other people is probably only 1-2%. Balancing the burdens of quarantine with the need to prevent the spread of COVID-19, CDC recently gave local public health departments two shorter options for quarantine. CDPH subsequently changed state recommendations for quarantine based on this information from the CDC.

How can I Support my Mental Health during Quarantine?

  • Keep informed:
    • Listen to advice and recommendations from your national and local authorities. 
    • Follow trusted news channels, such as local and national TV and radio
  • Have a routine:
    • Keep up with daily routines as far as possible, or make new ones.  
      • Get up and go to bed at similar times every day.
      • Keep up with personal hygiene.
      • Eat healthy meals at regular times.
      • Exercise regularly.
      • Allocate time for working and time for resting.
      • Make time for doing the things you enjoy.
  • Minimize newsfeeds:
    • Try to reduce how much you watch, read, or listen to news that makes you feel anxious or distressed.
    • Seek the latest information at specific times of the day, once or twice a day if needed. 
  • Social contact is important:
    • If your movements are restricted, keep in regular contact with people close to you by telephone and online channels.
  • Alcohol and drug use:
    • Limit the amount of alcohol you drink or don’t drink alcohol at all.
    • Don’t start drinking alcohol if you have not drunk alcohol before.
    • Avoid using alcohol and drugs as a way of dealing with fear, anxiety, boredom, and social isolation.
    • There is no evidence of any protective effect of drinking alcohol for viral or other infections. In fact, the opposite is true as the harmful use of alcohol is associated with an increased risk of infections and worse treatment outcomes.
    • And be aware that alcohol and drug use may prevent you from taking sufficient precautions to protect yourself again infection, such as compliance with hand hygiene.
  • Screen time:
    • Be aware of how much time you spend in front of a screen every day.
    • Make sure that you take regular breaks from on-screen activities.

    • Be sure to keep the right balance with off-line activities in your daily routine.
  • Social media:
    • Use your social media accounts to promote positive and hopeful stories.
    • Correct misinformation wherever you see it.
  • Help others:
    • If you are able to, offer support to people in your community who may need it, such as helping them with food shopping.
  • Support health workers:
