The CDC clarified their guidelines as it relates to home isolation and, in doing so, created some confusion. Within this link, four scenarios are detailed for isolation and for quarantine. Please review.
 

WHO NEEDS TO QUARANTINE?

People who have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19—excluding people who have had COVID-19 within the past 3 months.

People who have tested positive for COVID-19 do not need to quarantine or get tested again for up to 3 months as long as they do not develop symptoms again. People who develop symptoms again within 3 months of their first bout of COVID-19 may need to be tested again if there is no other cause identified for their symptoms.
 

WHAT COUNTS AS CLOSE CONTACT?
  • You were within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more
  • You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19
  • You had direct physical contact with the person (hugged or kissed them)
  • You shared eating or drinking utensils
  • They sneezed, coughed on you
     

The State of Tennessee has issued new quarantine guidelines for household contacts of a positive person. The household contact's 14-day quarantine period can not begin until the positive person in the household has completed their minimum 10-day isolation, totalling 24 days. If the positive person can self isolate at home and have no contact with the other members of the house, then the 14-day quarantine period can begin when the positive person's home isolation begins.
