Children or staff who test positive for COVID-19 must stay home and isolate for 5 days. Symptom onset is day 0. Repeating initial tests does not change this requirement. See the what to do if a person is symptomatic flowchart for more information.
Children or staff returning from 5 days of isolation should wear a well-fitted mask from days 6 to 10. Children and staff are also encouraged to test before returning to child care. Children who remain symptomatic or test positive after five days of isolation must isolate for the full 10 days.
