If you've been notified by your covid Alert app, or think you've been exposed to someone who has tested positive for covid 19, follow these steps to take care of yourself and protect others.
Step 1: Get tested
Step 2: Stay home until you get your test results
Step 3: If your test is positive – self isolate and notify
If you test positive, you will get a call from a public health official who will:
- tell you how long you must stay home and self-isolate
- ask you for a list of your close contacts
- follow up with each of your contacts and tell them what they should do (such as get tested or self-isolate)
- ask you to follow up with your contacts as soon as you can with any time-sensitive advice
Once you’ve recovered, learn how you could help others by donating convalescent plasma from your blood.
