Isolate and Take Precautions if You Have or Suspect You Have COVID-19


If you have COVID-19, you can spread the virus to others. There are precautions you can take to prevent spreading it to others: isolation, masking, and avoiding contact with people who are at high risk of getting very sick.


Isolation is used to separate people with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 from those without COVID-19. These recommendations do not change based on COVID-19 Community Levels.


If you have COVID-19, see additional information on treatments that may be available to you.
