Isolation guidance

Follow the latest CDC guidance for isolation timing if you tested positive for COVID-19 or have COVID-19 symptoms and have not tested. You will also find guidance on what to do if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.

This guidance applies to the general public. It does not apply to:

  • Healthcare workers.
  • People who work or live in congregate settings.
  • Confinement facilities.

Note: Individuals with COVID-19 are most likely to transmit infection in the first 5 days after symptoms start or after their positive test. People who leave isolation after 5 days should be fever free and with improving symptoms. They must wear a mask at all times when around others and must eat in a space separate from others for an additional 5 days.
