Frequently Asked Questions about Testing and Treatment

I was exposed to someone with COVID-19. What should I do?

For 10 days after your last exposure, wear a mask when you are around others indoors.

Get tested at least five full days after your last exposure – even if you don’t develop symptoms.

If you start to feel sick, isolate immediately and get tested.
