Quarantine

If you’re exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19, even if you don’t have any symptoms, you must:

Quarantine for 7 days followed by a negative COVID-19 test

OR

Quarantine for 10 days without a negative test

Some people with the virus never develop symptoms, so you could spread the virus even if you don’t feel sick. You may also have COVID-19 even if you have a negative test. Remember, one infected person can spread the virus to many other people. Your choices matter!
