If you have been tested for COVID-19 and are awaiting test results, you should self-isolate and self-monitor in order to protect yourself and your community from COVID-19. Home isolation is over when you have been fever-free for at least 24 hours without using medicine that reduces fevers AND your other symptoms have improved for at least 24 hours AND at least 10 days have passed since you first had symptoms.
NOTE: If you never have symptoms, you should stay isolated for at least 10 days after you were tested.
