If you have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19, you may be required (per NAC 441A.280) to maintain quarantine (stay home and away from others) as outlined below.
- People who are unvaccinated should quarantine for 5 days followed by strict mask use around others for 5 more days.
- People who are more than six months out from their last dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine (or more than two months after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) and have not yet received a booster dose should quarantine for 5 days followed by strict mask use around others for 5 more days. If a 5-day quarantine is not possible, the exposed person must wear a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days.
- Individuals who have received a booster dose do not need to quarantine following an exposure but should wear a mask around others for 10 days.
After exposure to someone with COVID-19, it is recommended to get tested 5 days after exposure. If symptoms develop at any time, you should immediately quarantine until a negative test result determines your symptoms are not related to COVID-19.
After your quarantine period you should continue to limit your contact with others as much as possible, and always wear a face mask when you are around people who do not live with you.
The state of Nevada requires people who have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19 to sign a Declaration of Self-Quarantine. Sign the declaration here.
