Quarantine vs. Isolation

Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.

Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.




The COVID-19 vaccine initially will be available in very limited doses -- but will scale up in production rapidly, allowing for enough supply to vaccinate all.  Planning efforts are based on three phases of availability:

  • Potentially limited doses available 

  • Large number of doses available

  • Sufficient supply for all

Recommendations for each phase will take many factors into account, including each vaccine’s characteristics, vaccine supply, disease epidemiology and local community factors. Read the Kansas COVID-19 Vaccination Plan.
