Self-isolation is when someone who is sick with a communicable disease (like COVID-19) voluntarily separates themselves from others to prevent transmission. This is usually done by staying home and minimizing contact with other humans.

Quarantine is when someone who is not symptomatic but has been exposed to a communicable disease (e.g. shook hands with someone who had a communicable disease) is separated to see if they become sick.

Social distancing is when an individual or an organization takes steps to limit the sort of human contact that would be conducive to the spread of a communicable disease. TVCC’s moving classes online is an example of social distancing, because it limits interactions that could spread COVID-19.
