How to Isolate At Home When You Have COVID-19
Isolation means staying at home when you are sick and have symptoms of COVID-19 and avoiding contact with other people to help prevent the spread of disease to others in your home and your community.
You must go directly home and stay at home if you have:
- been diagnosed with COVID-19, or are waiting to hear the results of a lab test for COVID-19
- symptoms of COVID-19, even if mild
- been in contact with a suspected, probable or confirmed case of COVID-19
- been told by public health that you may have been exposed to COVID-19
- returned from travel outside Canada with symptoms of COVID-19 (mandatory)*
- monitor your symptoms as directed by your healthcare provider or Public Health Authority until they advise you that you are no longer at risk of spreading the virus to others
- immediately contact your healthcare provider or Public Health Authority and follow their instructions if your symptoms get worse
