After a Large Gatherings
WAIT FOR 5 – 7 DAYS FROM THE DAY OF THE CONTACT
If you were at a gathering or were informed that you had contact with COVID-19 positive individuals, you should self-quarantine. If you do not have symptoms, it is best to get tested at least five days after the last time you were close to the person with COVID-19.
- If you get tested too soon, the test may not be able to detect the virus.
- Talk to your health care provider to get more advice on when to get tested.
Positive on COVID-19
- Stay home for 5 days.
- If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house.
- Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
Duration for Isolation and Quarantine
- CDC is shortening the recommended time for isolation from 10 days for people with COVID-19 to 5 days, if asymptomatic, followed by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others.
- Therefore, people who test positive should isolate for 5 days and, if asymptomatic at that time, they may leave isolation if they can continue to mask for 5 days to minimize the risk of infecting others.
