If you tested positive and are managing your illness at home you can end isolation when all three of these conditions are met:
- At least 5 days have passed since your symptoms started, or from test date if you did not have symptoms.
- Fever has resolved without the use of fever-reducing medication, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
- Symptoms have improved.
You should avoid non-essential visits to higher risk settings such as long term care facilities and gatherings, for another 5 days after ending isolation. This guidance is intended to prevent non-essential visits (e.g. social visits), and does not apply to essential workers. Employees should follow their workplace guidance.
Fully vaccinated means you received both doses of a 2-dose series (e.g. AstraZeneca, Pfizer, or Moderna vaccine) or it has been more than 14 days since you received a single dose of a 1-dose series (e.g. Janssen/ Johnson and Johnson).
