If my test result is negative, can I stop self-isolating? 

If your testing clinic test result is NEGATIVE:

  • If you were tested because you had symptoms and have no known exposure to COVID-19, you do not need to stay in isolation after you receive your result online. You should stay home while you are ill.
  • If you were tested because you are a close contact WITH SYMPTOMS, you are no longer required to isolate but you should stay home while experiencing symptoms and if continuing to experience symptoms, you should test again. Once your symptoms resolve, you should continue to follow enhanced measures for close contacts, as outlined here.
  • If you were tested because you are a close contact who works, lives or access services in a vulnerable setting, and do NOT have symptoms, you are not required to isolate, but should continue to follow enhanced measures for close contacts, as outlined here.
