If you have COVID:

You should isolate from others when you have COVID-19


Isolation and Precautions for People with COVID-19

If you have no symptoms:

  • Day 0 is the day you were tested 

  • Day 1 is the first full day following the day you were tested

If you develop symptoms within 10 days of when you were tested, the clock restarts at day 0 on the day of symptom onset

If you have symptoms:

Day 0 of isolation is the day of symptom onset, regardless of when you tested positive

Day 1 is the first full day after the day your symptoms started

  • If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate yourself from others in your home. 

  • Return to work or school on day 6, only if your symptoms are lessening and you have not had a fever for 24 hours. 

  • Wear a mask indoors through day 10. 

You are likely most infectious during the first 5 days.

  • Wear a high-quality mask if you must be around others at home and in public.

  • Stay home and separate from others as much as possible.

  • Use a separate bathroom, if possible.

  • Take steps to improve ventilation at home, if possible.

  • Don’t share personal household items, like cups, towels, and utensils.

  • Monitor your symptoms

If you have an emergency warning sign (like trouble breathing), seek emergency medical care immediately.

After Being Exposed to COVID-19 - Especially within your household

If you were exposed to COVID-19

  • Start precautions immediately and continue them for 10 full days after exposure.
  • Wear a mask as soon as you find out you were exposed and continue to wear a mask any time you are around others inside your home or indoors in public.
  • 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
  • Continue Precautions for 10 Full Days
You can still develop Covid-19 up to 10 days after you have been exposed
