The Pennsylvania Department of Health has issued several Health Alert Network (HAN) updates in the last week.
- Updated Quarantine Recommendations for Persons Exposed to COVID-19: This guidance replaces PA-HAN-538 and PA-HAN-551 and provides clarification on quarantine recommendations for persons exposed to COVID-19. This guidance provides information about the need for quarantine for both individuals who are and are not fully vaccinated.
- Work Restrictions for Healthcare Personnel with Exposure to COVID-19: The existing guidance on how to evaluate and respond to exposure of healthcare personnel (HCP) to COVID-19 in the healthcare setting has not changed, but additional items have been added to this guidance to clarify the post-exposure recommendations.
