If someone tests positive for COVID-19, they must stay home and self-isolate for five days after test collection or from first day they had symptoms. If they do not have symptoms after the five-day isolation period, or if symptoms are resolving, they can leave isolation but they must continue to wear a mask around other people for five more days.
