Individuals with COVID-19 symptoms should isolate away from household members where possible to avoid ongoing exposure.
Household members who do not have
COVID-19 symptoms are not required to isolate if they are:
- Under 18 years old and are
- 18 + and have received their COVID-19 booster
- Previously positive for COVID-19 (they tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days and have completed their isolation period)
All the above household members should monitor for symptoms for 10 days following last exposure. During the self-monitoring period, close contacts must wear a well-fitted mask in all public settings and avoid activities where they need to take off their mask (for example, playing a wind instrument in music class or playing high-contact sports).
If your child develops
COVID-19 symptoms, please complete the
COVID-19 screening tool for children in school and child care to determine next steps.
Children under 5 who do not have symptoms and are household contacts are required to isolate for 5 days.
