Isolation and Quarantine
Self-Paced Online Training: Isolation, quarantine, and social distancing are three different, but related, public health measures that are used to stop or minimize the spread of disease. These measures are part of a larger public health infectious disease surveillance system. This training will focus primarily on LBOH isolation and quarantine measures and will also include information about other measures to control infectious diseases (i.e., social distancing, vaccination, prophylaxis, closure of an establishment, personal and environmental hygiene, and education).
