If you have been tested for COVID-19, your health care provider will let you know once the results come back. You must follow the directions of your health care provider while waiting for your results.
If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19
Your health care provider will advise you on what you need to do if tested positive for COVID-19.
For most people this means isolating at home as most COVID-19 cases are mild, and there is currently no treatment available.
Public health officials will immediately begin to work on identifying and contacting anyone you may have come into close contact with.
Recovering from COVID-19
For a person to be recovered from COVID-19, they must receive guidance from a health care provider on their illness to determine if they can stop their isolation for COVID-19 based on the following criteria:
- completed 10 days of isolation from symptom onset; and
- resolution of symptoms.
Note: Depending on the severity of illness a healthcare provider may advise a longer isolation period
