What do my test results mean?

If you test positive for COVID-19:

  • Stay home for at least 5 days from the day your symptoms first started and until you’re feeling better. If you never had symptoms or felt sick, stay home for 5 days from the day you were tested.
  • Wear a mask around other people and in public for another 5 days after you end your isolation at home. 
  • Tell your close contacts to take precautions

If you test negative for COVID-19: 

  • Stay home if you have symptoms of COVID-19 until you are feeling better. 
  • You may need to get tested again or get a PCR test. Testing locations can be found here. If you can’t find a PCR test, wait 48 hours and then test again with an antigen or at-home test. 
  • Take precautions if you were exposed to COVID-19, like wearing a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days after your exposure.
