f Community Settings: COVID-19 - Minnesota Dept. of Health

Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) announced updated quarantine guidance on Dec. 7, 2020. This guidance is on Close Contacts and Tracing. We are working to update other areas of the website, documents, and other materials as quickly as possible.

These updates are based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance that shortens quarantine in certain situations. CDC: Options to Reduce Quarantine for Contacts of Persons with SARS-CoV-2 Infection Using Symptom Monitoring and Diagnostic Testing

Community Settings: COVID-19

When an outbreak of a disease reaches the point where it is actively spreading in a community, community organizations need to take actions too. By taking these actions, community organizations can help slow the spread and reduce demands on the health care sector so the most seriously ill people get the supportive care they need.
