  • If you are sick, it's important that you isolate yourself until you get your test results. Do not have contact with others. Do not go to work, meet up with friends or attend gatherings. Isolating yourself will prevent spread of the virus should you test positive.
  • If you have to be around others, wear a mask to prevent possible spread of the virus.
  • If you were tested for COVID-19 but have no symptoms and no known or suspected exposure to someone with COVID- 19 (for example, as part of a workplace screening program), you do not need to stay home while waiting for your results unless you are told to do so by your employer or by a public health official.



  • Negative test result: You most likely do not have COVID-19 at this time. You could have been exposed to COVID-19 at some point and not enough time has passed for the test to pick it up. You may test positive at a later date.

  • Positive test result: Follow isolation guidance if you test positive for COVID-19, even if you are up to date on your COVID-19 vaccines:

    • Stay home and separate yourself from others.
    • Wear a well-fitted mask if you must be around others.
    • Wash your hands and clean high-touched surfaces frequently.
