Which of the following applies to your situation:

Recommendation

If you are in a home that is isolating in a bubble with someone positive, we recommend that you isolate yourself for 14 days from when the first person in the house got sick, if:
  • You are asymptomatic.
  • You continue to test negative during the isolation period.
We recommend rapid tests at home or a community testing centre on the 3rd, 7th, 10th, and 14th day after first exposure (approximate days).

The reason 14 days is recommended is that you could get COVID-19 from the person who is sick on the first day they are sick, the second day, or even the last day. It may take time before you start to feel sick or test positive.

A contact who tests negative repeatedly while living with a person who has COVID-19 can end their isolation after 14 days. Even if other people in the home test positive after the first person in the home tests positive.

If one of your tests becomes positive, your situation is different. You should re-answer the questionnaire to get the correct recommendation for you to isolate as a person with COVID-19.

Are you immunosuppressed?

Recommendation

We recommend that you:
  1. isolate for 10 days after your positive COVID-19 diagnosis. 
  2. tell your contacts that you have tested positive so that they can take precautions and get tested. 
The recommended medical isolation period can end 10 days after a positive test or onset of symptoms if symptoms have cleared up. 

Immunosuppressed people are asked to isolate a little longer than people who are not because their immune suppression makes them able to spread it to others for longer.  

Because you are have immune suppression, you have more risk for severe illness. Check to see if you should take a COVID-19 treatment with your local CMC, even if you are vaccinated.
