What To Do If You Are Sick
People with mild symptoms, who are not sick enough to be hospitalized, should self-isolate at home. These people should:
- Avoid close contact with others
- Stay home for at least ten days from the start of symptoms, AND
- Stay home at least 72 hours after fever is gone, AND
- Stay home until respiratory symptoms have improved (coughing/sneezing)
People with severe symptoms of respiratory illness should call their healthcare provider immediately. Call ahead so that you can be safely evaluated to prevent exposing others. Your healthcare provider will evaluate you and determine the best course of action for your illness, including whether or not you should be tested.
