If you’ve recently tested positive for COVID-19, here’s information on what steps to take and how to notify your close contacts.
Note: If you were given a rapid antigen test at a COVID-19 testing site, please follow the instructions given to self-report your positive result.
How long do I need to self-isolate?
You can end isolation when all three of these conditions are met:
- At least 5 days have elapsed since your symptoms started (10 days if not fully vaccinated) or from your test date if asymptomatic
- Your fever has resolved for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications like acetaminophen or ibuprofen
- Other symptoms have improved or resolved
How do I notify close contacts?
Consider who you were with and where you’ve been in the two days before you started having symptoms up until you started to self-isolate. If you have not had any symptoms and tested positive, consider who you were with and where you’ve been in the two days before your positive test.
Generally, you should notify:
- People you live with
- People you had intimate contact with
