For both vaccinated and unvaccinated people, it is important to know what to do in case you are exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, as well as what to do in case you test positive for COVID-19.
ISOLATION IF YOU WERE EXPOSED TO COVID-19
If you are not vaccinated or your vaccinations are not up-to-date* against COVID-19: You can leave home but limit contact with others as much as possible. Wear a tight-fitting mask if you must be in a public space. Get tested 5 days after exposure and watch for symptoms.
You are vaccinated for COVID-19: you do not have to isolate from others unless you start to experience symptoms. Wear a tight-fitting mask around others, and get tested 5 days after exposure. After an exposure to COVID-19, symptoms may begin after 2-14 days.
