While waiting for your test results, you should stay home and avoid others to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. Let other members of your household and your immediate contacts know that they should quarantine or get tested. Continue to watch for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and the flu, and follow the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on what to do if you’re sick.
Specifically, you can follow these steps while waiting for your test results:
- Stay home and monitor your health
- Review locations and people you’ve been in contact with in the past two weeks
- Answer the phone call from the health department
