Why vaccinate ages 12-17? No quarantine!
Fully vaccinated individuals who are considered a close contact to someone with COVID-19 do not need to quarantine if they do not have any symptoms. Fully vaccinated individuals who are close contacts still need to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days, and if any single COVID-19 symptom develops, the individual needs to isolate and get tested.
Fully vaccinated individuals do not need to be excluded from school/activities if a family member (or close contact in a sport/activity) has symptoms or is awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test, so long as the fully vaccinated individual does not have any symptoms. This also includes summer camp, family reunions, vacations, etc.
All fully vaccinated individuals are required to follow illness exclusion/testing protocols for their school, workplace, and/or extracurricular activities if they develop symptoms or become ill regardless of vaccination status.
