Exposure to COVID-19
Definition – exposure: In proximity over 15 minutes within 6 feet of someone with COVID-19.
Definition – Fully Vaccinated: 2 weeks after a second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
Clarification: The person with COVID should be considered infectious for this exposure to be considered.
The CDC has been unable to culture viral specimens obtained from individuals more than nine days following the onset of symptoms. This means that these viral specimens were not capable of replicating — or, in other words, they were not infectious. https://medical.mit.edu/covid-19-updates/2020/11/recovery-covid-19-how-long-someone-contagious
