What to do when exposed to or in close contact with COVID-19?
If you have recently been exposed to someone known or suspected to have COVID-19, you could be at risk of infection yourself and possibly develop symptoms. COVID-19 spreads through close contact with another infected person. It’s important to know that you can still be infected with COVID-19 up to 14 days after you have been exposed to the virus.
- As soon as you develop any symptoms, test immediately.
- Consider testing before contact with someone at high risk for severe COVID-19, especially if you are in an area with a medium or high COVID-19 Community Level.
- If you are in certain high-risk settings, you may need to test as part of a screening testing program.
- If you were exposed to COVID-19 and do not have symptoms, wait at least 4 days after your exposure before testing. If you test too early, you may be more likely to get an inaccurate result.
