Village Theatre COVID-19 Guidance – updated Jan 13, 2022
If you have been in Close Contact with someone with COVID-19:
No quarantine needed if asymptomatic and one of the following applies:
- Age 18+ and completed the primary series of COVID-19 vaccine (two doses of Moderna or Pfizer, or single dose of Johnson & Johnson) and recommended boosters
- Age 5-17 years old and completed the primary series of COVID-19 vaccines (two doses of Pfizer)
- Had a confirmed case of COVID-19 with a PCR test, with medical documentation, in the last 90 days and fully recovered
Quarantine for at least 5 days after last close contact if one of the following applies:
- Age 18+ and completed the primary series of a COVID-19 vaccine (two doses of Moderna or Pfizer, or single dose of Johnson & Johnson), but have not received a recommended booster when eligible
- Any age, not vaccinated or not yet completed the primary vaccine series (two doses of Moderna or Pfizer, or single dose of Johnson & Johnson)
Quarantine ends after 5 full days after the last close contact if no symptoms have developed and after receiving a negative test result from a test taken no sooner than day 5 (or 10 days without a test). Continue to wear well-fitting mask around others for next 5 days (days 6–10)
QUARANTINE definition: When someone who has been exposed to COVID-19 stays home and away from others for the recommended period of time in case they were infected and are contagious. Quarantine becomes isolation if the person later tests positive for COVID-19 or develops symptoms.
If you have a Positive COVID-19 Test:
Isolation is required for anyone who tests positive for COVID-19, with or without symptoms, and regardless of vaccination status. Isolate for a minimum of 5 days at home from symptom onset or a positive test.
ISOLATION definition: When someone who has COVID-19 symptoms, or has tested positive, stays home and away from others (including household members) to avoid spreading their illness.
Positive test without symptoms:
- Isolate for a minimum of 5 days (the day of the positive test is considered “day 0”, the first full day after the test is “day 1”)
- If no symptoms develop, isolation can end after day 5, monitor for symptoms and continue to wear well-fitting mask when around others for next 5 days (days 6–10)
- If symptoms develop, the 5 days isolation period starts over, with “day 0” being the first day of symptoms
Positive test with symptoms:
- Isolate for a minimum of 5 days (the day symptoms begin is “day 0”)
- Isolation can end after 5 days if symptoms are absent or resolving, and no fever in the past 24 hours (without medication)
- Monitor symptoms and continue to wear well-fitting mask around others for next 5 days (days 6–10)
Booster Timeline Recommendations:
- 5 months after 2 doses Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna
- 2 months after single dose J&J/Janssen
If you are vaccinated with the initial doses, but not the booster, and have since tested positive with a COVID-19 “break-through”, you should get your booster 90 days following the positive test.
