How to Quarantine (Self-Isolate) When You May Have Been Exposed to COVID-19

People with COVID-19 do not always recognize their early symptoms. Even if you do not have symptoms now, you need to quarantine (self-isolate) for 14 days if you:

  • are returning from travel outside of Canada (mandatory quarantine)*
  • had close contact with someone who has or is suspected to have COVID-19
  • have been told by public health that you may have been exposed and need to
    quarantine (self-isolate)

Quarantine (self-isolate) means that for 14 days you need to:

  • stay at home and monitor yourself for symptoms, even if mild
  • avoid contact with other people to help prevent transmission of the virus at the earliest stage of illness
  • do your part to prevent the spread of disease by practicing physical distancing in your home

If you start to develop symptoms within 14 days of your quarantine, you must:

  • isolate yourself from others as soon as you notice your first symptom
  • immediately call a health care professional or public health authority
  • describe your symptoms and travel history to them
  • follow their instructions carefully
