Covid-19 Self Isolation Protocol

I’m a close contact of a positive case in my household and I don’t have symptoms:

  • Self-isolate immediately.
  • Test immediately.
  • Test at least 72 hours (3 days) after the positive case in your household first tested positive.
  • If using rapid tests, test again 48 hours later (day 5).

You can only stop isolating if:

  • You receive a negative PCR test or rapid test collected at least 72 hours after the positive household member first tested positive AND you still don’t have symptoms.
  • While you may stop isolating if your 72-hour rapid test is negative, you should complete another rapid test 48 hours later (day 5).

If you do not complete testing, you are required to isolate a full 7 days from the day the positive household member first tested positive.

If you test positive, you are considered a confirmed case of COVID-19. Please follow these instructions on what actions are needed as a case (i.e., how long to self-isolate and which contacts to notify).

Note: If someone else in your household tests positive, your isolation and testing instructions as a close contact start over again based on the test date of the household member to test positive most recently. 

If you have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days, you do not need to test and do not need to isolate unless you have symptoms.
