Christian Science practitioners do not personally attend known cases of disease subject to quarantine or isolation; nor is it necessary for them to do so. Personal presence is no more essential to healing now than it was when Christ Jesus healed the centurion's servant.

Merely claiming to be a Christian Scientist does not, of course, secure immunity from disease. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy writes (pp. 184, 186): "Belief produces the results of belief, and the penalties it affixes last so long as the belief and are inseparable from it;" and, "Christian Science destroys material beliefs through the understanding of Spirit, and the thoroughness of this work determines health."
