Information about the coronavirus COVID-19

If you develop symptoms, isolate and arrange a test. If it is positive, continue isolating for a total of 10 days from the start of symptoms. If it is negative, you no longer need to isolate. 

If a member of your family tests positive or you find you have been in close contact with someone with a positive test, isolate for 14 days. If you develop symptoms, arrange a test. If you do not develop symptoms, do not arrange a test. Testing too early can return a false negative result. Warn those you have been in close contact with that you are testing so that they can take extra precautions.

If the test is negative, continue to isolate for the remainder of the 14 days. 

If the test is positive, isolate for a total of 10 days from the onset of symptoms and inform anyone who you have been in close contact with.
