Exposure and Isolation Guidance

If you’ve been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, wear a mask when you’re around others and get tested at least 5 days after your exposure (or sooner if you have symptoms). If you test negative, continue taking precautions through day 10. If you test positive, follow isolation guidance.
