      Updated June 9, 2021

      Congregate settings, including correctional and detention facilities, are characterized by a diverse and varying set of factors that can increase risk and affect exposure to and transmission of COVID-19. These factors mean incarcerated/detained persons exiting quarantine prior to 14 days may not be able to comply with prevention measures necessary to reduce the risk of post-quarantine transmission (e.g. mask-wearing, physical distancing).

      Failure to detect transmission among people exiting quarantine prior to 14 days can result in a repeated cycle of medically isolating infected people and quarantining their close contacts, placing an even higher operational burden on the staff and further stretching limited healthcare resources and space constraints. For these reasons, CDC recommends continued use of a 14-day quarantine in correctional and detention facilities for people who are not fully vaccinated.
