What do we know about reinfection? Can adults get the rare inflammatory syndrome that was infecting some children? If guidelines say “close contact” is being within six feet of someone for 15 minutes, is it OK to be close to someone for less time? If someone quarantines for 14 days with no symptoms, do they need a test to be “clear”? If my child is sent home from school after possibly being exposed, do I have to quarantine too?
