- for at least 10 days if they are over the age of 12 and not fully vaccinated, are immunocompromised, or live in a highest risk settings.
If the worker reaches the end of their isolation period and has a fever and/or other symptoms, they must continue to isolate until their symptoms have improved for at least 24 hours (or 48 hours if the symptoms affect the digestive system) and you have no fever.
