ISOLATION AND QUARANTINE
Mt. SAC follows guidelines from Los Angeles County Public Health.
ISOLATION keeps someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 away from others. In Los Angeles
County, if you have COVID-19, you must: (1) isolate yourself, (2) wear a mask indoors
and outdoors and (3) tell your close contacts they have been exposed and need to follow
instructions for close contacts. Learn more about Isolation guidelines from Los Angeles County public health.
QUARANTINE is used to keep someone who has been exposed to a person with COVID-19 away from others.
They are sometimes called close contacts. Quarantine helps prevent the spread of disease
before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without
feeling symptoms. Read more on Quarantine guidelines from Los Angeles County public health.
Work with our Contact Tracing Department to learn more about how to respond to symptoms
and COVID-19 exposures, as well as identify people who are close contacts and would
need to take additional precautions. Phone: (909) 274-6900, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
