When to end home isolation

If you test positive for COVID-19, you may end home isolation after:

  1. at least 10 days have passed since symptoms first began, AND
  2. other symptoms have improved, AND
  3. at least 24 hours have passed since your last fever without the use of fever-reducing medications such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen.

For those without symptoms, you may end home isolation 10 days from the day the test was collected.

When to end home quarantine

If you had close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, you may end home quarantine after 10 days (starting the day you were exposed) if you do not get tested and do not have any symptoms during this 10-day period — OR — after 7 days (starting the day you were exposed) if you test negative and do not have any symptoms during this 7-day period. You should be tested on day 5 of your quarantine, and you will need to stay home for the full 7 days.

Continue to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days after your exposure.
