Any person with COVID-19 symptoms who is not tested and can be managed at home should self-isolate until:

  • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared, and

Have a plan in case you get sick:

  • Consult with your healthcare provider for more information about monitoring your health for symptoms suggestive of COVID-19.
  • Stay in touch with others by phone or email. You may need to ask for help from friends, family, neighbors, community health workers, etc. if you become sick.
