- You’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19.
- 10 full days after symptoms, or the date of your positive test if there were no symptoms, do not travel.
Waiting for COVID-19 test results.
- It’s imperative that you isolate yourself and delay your return if your test results are positive while you’re at your location. Quarantining yourself and your partners is a possibility.
- You should be quarantined since you were in close contact with someone who has COVID-19.
- If you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, wait at least five days before travelling. Do not travel for 10 days following your last exposure is the recommended course of action.
- After the previous exposure, if you have to travel between days 6 and 10:
- Obtain a blood test at least five days since your last interaction. Before embarking on a trip, be sure you have a negative test result and are free of symptoms. Don’t travel for 10 days since your latest close encounter with someone who has COVID-19 if you haven’t been tested.
- On days 6 through 10, use a well-fitting face mask whenever you’re among other people. Days six through ten are off limits for anybody who can’t put on a mask.
Even if quarantining someone who has COVID-19 was not suggested, if you had intimate contact with that individual…
- Obtain a blood test at least five days since your last interaction. Before embarking on a trip, be sure you have a negative test result and are free of symptoms.
- COVID-19 was verified during the last 90 days, so you do not need to be tested, but you should still adhere to the rest of the advice (including tests for COVID-19 symptoms).
- Make sure to wear a well-fitting face mask while you’re out in public for the whole of 10 days following your last exposure. For the 10 days, if you are unable to use a face mask, you really shouldn’t travel.
