Instructions for Confirmed Cases of COVID-19

If you have mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms and are at high risk for severe disease, you may be able to get medicine. Refer to COVID-19 Medications: Monoclonal antibodies for more information.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, you must separate yourself from others until all three of these things are true:

  • You feel better. Your cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms are better.
    and
  • It has been 10 days since you first felt sick.
    and
  • You have had no fever for the last 24 hours, without using medicine that lowers fevers.

Watch yourself for symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, headache, muscle pain, sore throat, fatigue, congestion, or loss of taste or smell. This is to protect yourself, your family, and your community.
