When you have COVID-19, isolation is counted in days, as follows:
If you had no symptoms
If you had symptoms
If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home. You are likely most infectious during these first 5 days.
End isolation based on how serious your COVID-19 symptoms were. Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation.
If you had no symptoms, you may end isolation after day 5.
If you had symptoms and your symptoms are improving you may end isolation after day 5 if you are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication).
If your symptoms are not improving continue to isolate until you are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication) and your symptoms are improving.
