Stay home for 10 days (starting the day you were exposed) and stay away from others as much as possible. You can resume your normal activities if you do not have any symptoms during this 10-day period. OR Stay home for 7 days (starting the day you were exposed) if you test negative and if you do not have any symptoms during this time. You should be tested on day 5 of your quarantine, and you will need to stay home for the full 7 days.
If you have a medical appointment or need to leave your home during your quarantine period for other services, wear a face mask and call the office you will be visiting to inform them that you have tested positive for COVID-19.
Stay 6 feet or more away from others at all times (including others in your home).
Monitor your health for symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath.
Continue to monitor your symptoms for 14 days after your exposure.
If you develop symptoms, immediately begin to self-isolate and get tested. Make sure to let your medical provider know you are experiencing symptoms and had contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
