    Isolation, in medicine, separation of an infected individual (human or animal) from the healthy until that individual is no longer able to transmit the disease.
    Isolation period = INFECTIVE PERIOD in known case

    In its strictest sense, the practice of isolation differs from that of quarantine, which is the detention of an individual who may have been exposed to a communicable disease until it is deemed certain that he has escaped infection.
