 Contact Tracing Information: On December 27, 2021 the CDC changed their isolation and quarantine guidance for the general population and the CT Department of Health recommends all non-K-12 school related cases and contacts following the new CDC guidance.  On December 31, 2021 the State of CT issued guidance for all K-12 related cases and contacts that should be followed. Due to the shortened isolation period, the current difficulty in obtaining testing and delays in receiving test results; contact tracers may not be aware of a case until that individual's isolation period has concluded.  Therefore, those who test positive for COVID should notify  all their close contacts as soon as possible and both cases and contacts should follow the applicable CT K-12 guidance or CDC General Population guidance.  Those who are non-school related cases or contacts who have questions can speak with a contact tracer by calling 203 256-3150. 

School related cases and contacts should report those to their school or the FPS Hotline at 203 255-8785.  When reporting please include if it is an isolation(case) or a quarantine(contact), all dates expected to be absent and if in elementary school if student is in band.  In calculating the 5 day isolation or quarantine period, for isolation day zero is date of symptom onset or day positive test was collected, which ever is earlier and return is on day 6 if no fever for 24hrs and symptoms improving.  For quarantines day zero is the last day of a close contact exposure to a case and return is on day 6 if no symptoms have developed.  The CDC has a isolation/quarantine calculator to help determine dates.
