Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 or lives with someone who has tested positive needs to isolate for 7 full days.
If you have COVID-19 you do not need to take another test. As long as you have no symptoms after 7 full days of isolation you can return to life/work as normal.
If you have reported your positive result, you will get a text message telling you when your 7 days is finished. This text message can be used as proof for your employer that you are clear to come back to work unless a separate policy is in place requiring a negative test.
If you live with someone who has COVID-19 you should test on days 3 and 7 or if you get symptoms. If your day 7 test is negative and you have no symptoms you can stop isolating on day 8. Remain vigilant for symptoms.
If you still have symptoms on day 7 stay home until 24 hours after your symptoms subside.
If you have already had COVID-19 and someone you live with tests positive within 3 months of your recovery, you do not need to isolate again.
- Your isolation period starts from the date of your positive test or the day you started having symptoms, whichever came first.
- A positive RAT is enough to confirm you have COVID-19. You do not need a PCR to confirm the result.
