VIDEO: Quarantine 101 – Do people who test negative after exposure still have to quarantine?

Once a person tests positive for Covid, a team of contact tracers work to track down anyone that person came into significant contact with within a given period. The contacts must then quarantine for 14 days from the last time they had in-person interaction with the Covid patient, even if they feel healthy. (The Enterprise/Rachel Parsons)
