COVID-19 Isolation Instructions

If You Test Positive For COVID-19 (Isolate)

If you:

Have a positive viral test for COVID-19, regardless of whether or not you have symptoms.

OR

Have symptoms of COVID-19, including people who are awaiting test results or have not been tested. People with symptoms should isolate even if they do not know if they have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19.

Then:

  • Stay home for 5 days.
  • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house.
  • Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
  • If you had no symptoms and tested positive, then develop symptoms within 10 days, the clock restarts at day 0 on the day of symptom onset. 

If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.

  • Isolation is used to separate people infected with COVID-19 from those who are not infected
  • Monitor your symptoms and contact your health care provider for medical advice. Seek emergent care if you experience an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing).
  • See what to do if you are sick
  • Tell your close contacts so they can mask for 10 days and self monitor. 
  •  Removing masks: mask through day 10. If you have 2 sequential negative tests, 48 hours apart, then you can remove your mask before day 10. If you test positive after day 10, you should continue to wear your mask until you test negative. 

If You Were Exposed to Someone with COVID-19

If you were exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 or have been told by a healthcare provider or public health authority that you were exposed, here are the steps that you should take, regardless of your vaccination status or if you have had a previous infection. Learn how COVID-19 spreads and the factors that make risk of spread higher or lower.

Wear a mask as soon as you find out you were exposed

Start counting from Day 1

  • Day 0 is the day of your last exposure to someone with COVID-19
  • Day 1 is the first full day after your last exposure
  •  
  • GET TESTED
    Day 6
  • Get tested at least 5 full days after your last exposure

    Test even if you don’t develop symptoms.

    If you already had COVID-19 within the past 90 days, see specific testing recommendations.

            IF YOU TEST Negative 

          Continue taking precautions through day 10

  • Wear a high-quality mask when around others at home and indoors in public

           You can still develop COVID-19 up to 10 days after you have been exposed.

Take Precautions

Wear a high-quality mask or respirator (e.g., N95) any time you are around others inside your home or indoors in public 1

  • Do not go places where you are unable to wear a mask. For travel guidance, see CDC’s Travel webpage.

Take extra precautions if you will be around people who are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19.
