When can my employee/student who was named as A close contact to COVID-19 return to work or school?
Close contacts should follow CDC’s guidance for quarantine after exposure. The following individuals do not need to quarantine after an exposure to COVID-19 if they remain asymptomatic:
Age 18 or older and have received all recommended vaccine doses, including boosters if eligible.
Age 5-17 years old and completed the primary series of COVID-19 vaccines
Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days
Request an End of Quarantine Letter
Due to the high volume of COVID-19 cases and calls, Montgomery County Office of Public Health (OPH) is encouraging residents to complete an online request to expedite the process of obtaining a quarantine letter. If you were contacted by a contact tracer, please reach out to them first.
Please complete this form and submit it electronically. The more information you provide, the easier it will be for staff to complete the request timely. Upon completion of the online request, OPH staff will contact you to verify the information provided on the form. Please allow 2-3 business days for a reply. This form is for Montgomery County residents only. Residents of other jurisdictions should contact their local health department or PA DOH for assistance.
