If members have tested positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms after being exposed, the CDC has shortened the recommended time for isolation and quarantine from 10 days to five days, regardless of vaccination status.

Anyone exposed and not up-to-date on vaccination will also need to quarantine for 5 days. See COVID-19 quarantine and isolation page full guidance.

If two or more staff or volunteer members develop confirmed or suspected COVID-19 within a 14-day period, Washington State guidance requires businesses, non-profits, and other organizations to self-report this information to Public Health.

General questions about services

The most important ways you can limit the spread of COVID-19 include:

It is okay to share materials as the risk of transmission by touch is very low.

Singers and performers should consider wearing masks and use instrument covers while performing to limit transmission. Practice good hygiene and maintain social distance.

For additional information, please refer to state guidance on considerations for performing arts in K-12 schools (page 12) and school-sponsored performances (page 13).

Speakers should consider wearing masks to limit transmission and using voice amplification so that speakers can be heard clearly.

Practice good hygiene and maintain social distance and if possible, use a well-ventilated area, outdoors is better than indoors.

If you have COVID-like symptoms:

  • Isolate for at least 5 days. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed. Isolating for 10 days is the safer option since it's still possible to spread COVID-19 after day 5 (though you will not be nearly as contagious as earlier in your infection).
  • After 5 days, if you have no symptoms or your symptoms are going away, you can leave your home. Do not leave your home if you still have a fever. You must continue to wear a high-quality, well-fitting mask around others for 5 more days (for a total of 10 days).
  • If your symptoms last longer than 5 days, continue isolating until your symptoms have improved and you no longer have a fever.

If you were exposed to someone with COVID-19:

  • And you are NOT up-to-date on vaccination and booster:
    • Quarantine for 5 days and get tested on day 5. It's important to test on day 5 if possible.
    • If you test negative or you do not have symptoms after 5 days, you can leave your home. You must continue to wear a high-quality, well-fitting mask around others for 5 more days (total of 10 days).
    • If you can't quarantine, you must wear a high-quality, well-fitting mask around others for 10 days after the exposure, distance from others, avoid crowded places and stay away from people at high risk for COVID-19.
  • And you ARE up-to-date on vaccination and booster:
    • You do not need to quarantine.
    • Wear a high-quality, well-fitting mask around others for 10 days after the exposure.
    • Test on day 5, if possible.
    • Pay attention for symptoms. If you develop symptoms, immediately quarantine unless you get a negative COVID-19 test result.
