People who test positive for COVID-19 with an at-home test should isolate immediately and are advised to:

  • Self-isolate (for at least five days from the first day you had symptoms if you are fully vaccinated (at least two doses), or at least 10 days if you are not vaccinated)
  • Manage symptoms
  • Notify close contacts
