If you test positive for COVID-19, self-isolate for 10 days, even if you don’t have symptoms. This means:

  • informing your employer,
  • staying away from everyone, including the people you live with and family members,
  • not sharing utensils or bathrooms with others,
  • only leaving home to seek medical treatment and while wearing a mask, and
  • you will receive a call from a contact tracer to identify close contacts and identify your needs to isolate safely.

If you have/develop a fever, self-isolate for at least 10 days plus 24 hours without fever (and without the use of fever-reducing medication) and symptoms improve.

If you have no symptoms at the end of your self-isolation period, you can resume normal activities. If you still feel sick, call your doctor for next steps.

Seek medical care immediately or call 911 if someone has emergency warning signs of severe COVID-19:

  • Difficulty breathing/shortness of breath
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest 
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Bluish lips or face

This list is not all possible symptoms.  Please call your healthcare provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.
