Isolation Protocols

While your test results are pending, you are directed to self-isolate. Self-isolation means avoiding situations where you could infect other people.

  • DO NOT attend activities or gatherings where you may come in close contact with other people. This includes work, school and university, public transport (plane/bus/taxi/carpool), health-care facilities, faith-based facilities (church), grocery stores or restaurants, shopping malls, sporting events, concerts and birthday parties.
  • Heed any and all base agencies’ and local services’ guidelines/protocols for persons in isolation. Work with leadership to bring your family necessities (food, supplies, etc.). You can go outside for fresh air and exercise in your home area (i.e. yard), but you must adhere to the 6 feet away (minimum) if you encounter other individuals. Limit Contact. Remain at least 6 feet away or spend no more than 15 minutes within 6 feet, from other individuals during this time.
  • If possible, separate from non-sick family members/roommates, stay in a separate room, avoid sharing personal items, avoid physical contact, be aware and thoroughly clean shared items. The only exception to breaking your self-isolation is to seek immediate medical care at an off-base hospital or emergency room.  Additionally, no one other than your household members can come over to your residence to visit (hang-out) with you while you are self-isolating. 
  • For all members of the family who are NOT fully vaccinated, they must quarantine. Fully vaccinated means the member has 2 vaccines and a booster or completed 2 vaccines within the last 6 months.
