If you’ve been fully vaccinated:
You can carefully resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic. Also, wearing a mask over your nose and mouth in public may be wise especially on planes, busses, trains, and other forms of public transportation and while indoors at U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations, as well as other places where there are an abundance of people.

Close Contact Procedure:
You should be tested if you live with someone who has Covid-19, if you’ve had close contact with someone who has Covid-19, or if you have symptoms of Covid-19. Close contact means that someone who has Covid-19 was less than 6 feet away from you for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period. For example, three individual 5-minute exposes for a total of 15 minutes.

If you’ve had close contact with someone who has Covid-19, you should get tested 5-7 days after your exposure, even if you don’t have symptoms. You should also wear a mask at MSLAW and elsewhere for 14 days following exposure or until your test result is negative. If you are living with or caring for someone with Covid, so that you are in close contact with them, then you need to get tested 5-7 days after they stop having symptoms of Covid to return to MSLAW.

If you have any symptoms of Covid-19, you should get tested and stay home and away from others.

If your test result is positive, then you must isolate at home until you are symptom free for at least 5 days. After being symptom free for 5 days, you may return to MSLAW when you supply a negative Covid-19 test result to the MSLAW Registrar’s Office. That test can be any of the accepted medically advisable tests.

If you have the flu, a serious cold, or feel unwell, then please stay home to avoid spreading any illness to others.
