Highlights:

I have symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive on a PCR or rapid antigen test 

  • HIGH RISK GROUPS:  Isolate for 10 days from the date your symptoms started or the date of your positive test, if available (whichever is earlier) AND until your symptoms have been improving for 24 hours (or 48 hours if gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea) and you do not have a fever.

 

  • OTHER INDIVIDUALS:  

Isolate until symptoms have been improving for 24 hours (or 48 hours if gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea) and you do not have a fever.

OTHER INDIVIDUALS CONT’D

If you have a positive test result and no symptoms, you do not need to self-isolate unless symptoms develop, but you should follow the precautions below. If you develop symptoms, self-isolate immediately.

  • For a total of 10 days after the start of symptoms (or date of positive test result, whichever is earlier), you should:
  • Continue to wear a well-fitted mask in all public settings.
  • Wear a mask as much as possible in public settings (including school and child care, unless under 2 years old (24 months)). 
  • You can participate in activities where a mask is worn but you should avoid non-essential activities where removing the mask would be necessary (e.g., dining out, playing a wind instrument, high contact sports where masks cannot be safely worn)

Thank you
