Updated Quarantine Guidance


Based on updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CUPHD will implement a 10-day quarantine for persons identified as close contacts to someone with COVID-19. Quarantine can end after Day 10 without testing and if a person does not have symptoms. For persons that choose this option, CUPHD recommends testing on day 10 and self-monitoring of symptoms through day 14. If symptoms develop at any time, individuals should go for testing immediately. Testing is available for everyone at Marketplace Mall, more info here

People can also be released from quarantine with a negative test collected on day 7 or after of your quarantine. In order to be released from quarantine and receive a release letter from Public Health, the individual must send an email to coronarvirus@c-uphd.org with the following information: 

  • SUBJECT: Release from Quarantine 
  • Full name 
  • Phone Number 
  • Proof of negative test result (must have test collection date) 

*Please note that requests with incomplete information will not be processed. CUPHD will not look up proof of negative tests for people, you must provide the proof of negative test to us or complete the full 10 day quarantine. 

Our contact tracing team will process these release requests and follow-up with any questions that we have. You will receive a release letter to the email that you provided within 48 hours of your request. 

If you are currently under quarantine and being monitored by CUPHD, you can request a shortened quarantine by emailing coronavirus@c-uphd.org with the following information: 

  • SUBJECT: Shortened Quarantine 
  • Full name 
  • Phone number 

We will look in to these changes and contact you if we have questions. Please allow 48 hours for these requests to process. If you have questions about your new quarantine end date, please call 312-777-1999.
