Testing & Isolation for COVID-19

Q. I just took a test for COVID-19. What should I do next?

If you took a test because you are experiencing symptoms, you and members of your immediate household should stay home until you get your results.

Q. I tested positive for COVID-19. What should I do now?

If you are sick or if you have tested positive for COVID‐19 without symptoms:

– Stay home and stay away from others, even in your own home.

– Stay home at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared and at least 24 hours with no fever without fever‐reducing medication and symptoms have improved.

– If you live with others, stay in a specific “sick room” or area and away from other people or animals, including pets, if at all possible. Use a separate bathroom, if available.

– Notify your close contacts. People you have been around during the two-day period prior to the start of your symptoms (or if you are asymptomatic, two days before your positive COVID-19 specimen collection date), through to the time you start isolation, are at greatest risk of infection and should be prioritized for notification.
