Most people who test positive for COVID-19 will experience a mild illness and can safely manage their symptoms at home.
Self-isolate when you get a test, have COVID-19, arrive from overseas, are a household contact with symptoms, or at high risk of getting COVID-19.
If you live with someone who has COVID-19 or you are a close contact, follow these guidelines to help protect your loved ones and your community.
