What do I do if I've tested positive for COVID-19?

If you test positive for COVID-19 you must isolate. Isolation is a period of time spent avoiding all physical human contact due to testing positive for COVID-19 or experiencing symptoms. This involves trying to only use your own bathroom and bedroom (and not using other areas where other people in your home may live).

Isolation Guidelines

  • Stay in your own room and use your own bathroom, if possible.
  • Avoid contact with people and/or pets in your home and living space.
  • Don’t share household items like cups, towels, utensils, etc.
  • Only leave your living space for medical care.
  • Remain in isolation until you have no fever for at least 72 hours (without medication) AND symptoms have improved AND at least ten days have passed since your symptoms first started or you tested positive.

What do I do if I test negative for COVID-19?

If you test negative while in quarantine, you need to complete the duration of your quarantine (7 days after last known exposure).

If you test negative and are not in quarantine you can continue normal activities.


Prevention is best. Always practice healthy actions to protect yourself and others.
