If you had close contact with a person with COVID-19 (an exposure), you need to stay home and away from others (quarantine).
In general, a close contact means being less than six feet from someone for 15 minutes or more throughout a 24-hour period. However, even shorter periods of time or longer distances can result in spread of the virus.
Minnesota has begun safely reopening. As we return to work and activities we enjoy, we have a shared responsibility to look out for each other and save lives. Keeping businesses and other venues open will depend on all of us doing our part to stay six feet apart, wash our hands often, stay home when sick and wear a mask.
