Limit gatherings

Gathering limits should be restricted to the guidelines posted in the COVID Mitigation section on the PA COVID-19 response website.

Time frame:
Until further notice

Why is it important?

Limiting the number of people at gatherings helps reduce risk of viral spread, which is especially important since case rates in Pennsylvania and around the country are surging right now. Gatherings are risky because while attendees may look and feel healthy, people are contagious before they develop symptoms, and some people with the virus never develop symptoms at all.

Quarantine

If you’re exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19, even if you don’t have any symptoms, you must:

Quarantine for 7 days followed
by a negative COVID-19 test

Some people with the virus never develop symptoms, so you could spread the virus even if you don’t feel sick. You may also have COVID-19 even if you have a negative test. Remember, one infected person can spread the virus to many other people. Your choices matter!

Quarantine for 10 days
without a negative test

Quarantining for vaccinated individuals

People who have had both doses of a two-dose vaccine, or one dose of a single dose vaccine, do not need to quarantine after an exposure to another person with COVID-19 if they meet all the following criteria:

And

They are fully vaccinated

And

They have remained asymptomatic since the current COVID-19 exposure

They are within three months following receipt of the last dose in the series

Please note that this does not mean the vaccine is only effective for three months, but rather that it is unclear how long immunity from vaccine will last. The CDC is utilizing what is known about natural post-infection immunity and limiting the quarantine guidance to 90 days at this time while additional research is conducted

When can I get a vaccine?

Pennsylvania is using a phased vaccine approach. Because vaccine supply may be limited initially, efforts will focus on vaccinating essential healthcare workers, staff and residents of long-term care facilities, EMS workers, persons age 65 and older, and those age 16-64 with high-risk conditions. As vaccine supply increases, the vaccine will be made available to other critical populations and then to the general public. Additional information can be found here.
