In labs, hospitals and other settings, bio-safety is of the utmost importance. If there's ever a worst-case scenario, knowing the difference between a quarantine and isolation can help protect public health. While these two terms are often used interchangeably, the CDC defines them as follows:
An isolation is the act of separating a person or people with a contagious disease from those who are well.
A quarantine is used to restrict those who have potentially been exposed to a hazardous contaminant in order to see if they get sick. Hence, those in quarantine might not be infected, whereas isolation is used specifically because a person has been contaminated.
