If You Have Been Exposed to a Person with COVID-19

If you have been exposed to a person with COVID-19, it may take up to 10 days to know if you will get sick. It is important that you follow specific quarantine or isolation instructions from your healthcare provider or health department. Check your health two times each day for 10 days after an exposure to someone who is ill. Follow the steps below to check and record your health status:

  1. Do health checks every morning and every night:
    • Watch for fever (100.4◦F), cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting or diarrhea.

  2. Stay home away from others until 5 days after your last exposure: 
    • If possible, separate yourself from other household members that were not exposed especially those at higher-risk from getting very sick from COVID-19. It is strongly recommended that you wear a well-fitting mask around others – especially indoors – for 10 days after your last contact, even if you end quarantine earlier.
    • You may end quarantine after 5 days IF you test negative on Day 5 (or later) after your last contact (exposure) with an infected person AND you’ve had no symptoms.  Wear a well-fitting mask and avoid being around people who are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19 until day 10

    3. If you develop COVID-19 symptoms such as fever (fever is 100.4°F/38°C or higher), cough, body aches, sore throat, etc.:

    • Get tested right away and stay home while awaiting results, even if you are vaccinated or had COVID-19 before (an antigen test is recommended if you have tested positive within the past 90 days). Contact your healthcare provider with questions about your symptoms, care, and treatment options.

When to Seek Emergency Medical Attention

Look for emergency warning signs* for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent chest pain or pressure
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Pale, gray or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on the skin tone
*This list does not include all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you. 

Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.

Prevention is the best strategy to reduce your risk of viral infection.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are unavailable.

  • Wear a well-fitting mask indoors when you are around other people not in your household

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick or people outside of your home - keep at least a 6-foot distance. Remember that some people without symptoms can spread the virus. 

  • Avoid poorly ventilated spaces and crowds.

  • Disinfect commonly touched surfaces such as counters, tables, keyboards, and doorknobs.

  • Avoid sharing drinks, eating utensils, sports equipment, towels and bedding.

  • Keep healthy by eating a balanced diet, drinking water, getting enough sleep, and managing stress.

  • Obtain a preventative vaccine such as the COVID-19 vaccine or flu shot if available.


Handwashing is one of the most effective ways to protect yourself and others from getting sick. Frequently wash your hands to prevent spreading germs such as viruses and bacteria

  • Before and after
    • preparing food
    • eating food
    • treating a cut or wound
    • caring for someone who is ill
  • After sneezing, coughing, or blowing your nose
    • returning from a public place
