What to do if you suspect exposure to COVID-19


If you have tested positive: 

  • Experiencing symptoms? Yes
  • Wear face mask? Yes, when around others
  • Stay home: Your local health departments will guide you on home care advice

If you have tested negative or been untested:

  • Experiencing symptoms? Yes
  • Wear face mask? Yes, when around others
  • Stay home: At least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since recovery defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); OR, at least 7 days from symptom onset, whichever is longer.

If you have not been tested, but have been exposed to someone with symptoms:

  • Experiencing symptoms? No
  • Wear face mask? No, only confirmed case or person under investigation should wear mask around you
  • Stay home: Keep distance from others, use proper hand hygiene, monitor symptoms
