Unsure if you should get tested? Been in close contact to someone with COVID-19? Confused about isolation and quarantine procedures? Follow these guidelines for getting tested, reporting a positive test, and isolating yourself away from others.
Fully vaccinated individuals do NOT need to quarantine or isolate upon exposure to a confirmed positive COVID-19 individual. One is “fully vaccinated” ≥ two weeks after receiving the second dose of either the Pfizer BioNTech or Moderna vaccines or ≥ two weeks after receiving a single-dose vaccine (Johnson and Johnson).
Are you experiencing symptoms?
Unvaccinated and exposed to COVID-19 but have no symptoms?
After testing positive for COVID-19:
Following a positive test result, SELF-ISOLATE for at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared and at least 24 hours with no fever (without taking fever reducing medication) and improvement in symptoms
After 10 days with the last 24 hours being asymptomatic, without taking fever-reducing medication, you can leave quarantine.
