If You Test Positive

You do not need to report your positive test result to OHA.

If you have COVID-19 you do not need to isolate for a set number of days. However, you can still get others sick. If you have COVID-19:

  • Stay home until you have not had a fever for 24 hours without using fever reducing medication and other COVID-19 symptoms are improving.
  • Avoid contact with high-risk individuals like people who live in congregate care facilities or people with immunocompromising conditions for 10 days.
  • Mask when you are around other people in the 10 days after you become sick or test positive.

If you have a severe case, are hospitalized or are severely immunocompromised please follow the recommendations above, avoid contact with high-risk people and mask for 10-20 days. Please contact your healthcare provider for advice on how long to isolate.
