Quarantine and Exclusion requirements are established in consultation and at the direction of the Lincoln Lancaster Health Department.

Vaccinated individuals identified as a close contact WITHOUT symptoms will need to self-monitor for symptoms and are not required to quarantine as long as they remain symptom free.

Unvaccinated individuals identified as close contacts WITHOUT symptoms can return to work or school:

  • After day 10 without testing
  • After day 7 after receiving a negative test result (test must occur on day 5 or later)

All close contacts WITH symptoms still need to quarantine for 10 days and may return WITH A MASK ON THROUGH DAY 14. -even with a negative test result.

Also, if a person has lost sense of taste/smell OR had an exposure they may quarantine for 10 days AND WEAR A MASK THROUGH DAY 14 in lieu of a test.
