- Question: When does isolation end after testing positive for COVID-19?
Answer: You may end isolation AFTER Day 5 (that is, Day 6 or later) IF:
- You take a test on Day 5 (or later) and receive a negative result (antigen test preferred); AND
- You have not had a fever for 24 hours without taking fever-reducing medication; AND
- Any other symptoms are improving, or you have no symptoms.
Also, the California Department of Public Health now has an online Isolation Calculator to help you determine how long you should isolate. For more information, visit the Instructions for Isolation and Quarantine.
If you’ve been exposed: Follow the isolation/quarantine instructions until you can be tested and receive test results.
If you need to be tested: You can get tested and treated for COVID-19 with one stop. The state’s Test to Treat site at 2420 Breslauer Way provides testing, and if the person is positive and treatments are appropriate, they receive a prescription from a health care provider and have the prescription filled all at one location. Schedule an appointment online. The site is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
