You may need to isolate if you were exposed to someone who has COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19.

Take the COVID-19 self-assessment to determine next steps and recommendations.

Get tested for COVID-19 if you are eligible.

If you have tested positive on a rapid antigen test, you don’t need a PCR test to confirm the result.

Determine if you are eligible for PCR testing.

If you are eligible for a PCR test, find a testing location near you.

Inform your close contacts of their exposure.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive on a COVID-19 test, tell your close contacts that they have been exposed.

A close contact is anyone you were less than two metres away from for at least 15 minutes, or multiple shorter lengths of time, without personal protective equipment in the 48 hours before your symptoms began or your positive test result, whichever came first.

Informing your contact will help stop the spread of the virus. Give them the link to covid-19.ontario.ca/exposed.
