How long should someone stay home if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19?

Do not attend work or class with symptoms of COVID-19. Get tested for COVID-19 and isolate yourself immediately, whether or not you’re vaccinated.

If your test result is negative, consult a health care provider before returning to work or class.

Following a positive test, you will need to isolate yourself until you are no longer at risk of passing the virus to others. Find isolation instructions here.
