If you tested positive for COVID-19: You must self-isolate for 5 days after your test was collected. If you are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medicines like Tylenol or ibuprofen) and your symptoms are improving, you may leave isolation but must continue to wear a mask when around others for 5 more days. If you test negative on two sequential tests taken 48 hours apart, you may remove your mask sooner.
If you have symptoms but have not been tested for COVID-19: If you have fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, please get tested. You should isolate away from others while you are waiting for your test result. If you do not get tested you should isolate for 5 days after your symptoms began, and until it has been at least 24 hours since you had a fever (without taking fever-reducing medicines like Tylenol or ibuprofen) and your other symptoms have improved. Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 more days.
