January Update to Quarantine Guidance

Friday, January 7, 2022 - 11:30am

In response to the recent changes in COVID-19 isolation and quarantine recommendations for the general public put forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) and the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) are providing the following interim guidance for local school systems, nonpublic schools, and child care programs. For issues not addressed in this memo, CDC recommendations should be followed.

This interim guidance temporarily replaces the isolation and quarantine guidance in the K-12 School and Child Care COVID-19 Guidance document dated October 27, 2021. As the CDC is expected to issue specific updates to its recommendations for K-12 schools and child care programs in the near future, it should be noted that this interim guidance is subject to change.
