If You Test Positive for COVID-19

Test results for COVID-19 usually take 3-7 days to come in, if not sooner. Until you hear back from your provider, however, you should continue to practice the good hygiene and social distancing practices recommended by the CDC:

  • Stay at home and limit your contact with others.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly, and often.
  • Cover your sneeze or cough.
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Keep high-touch surfaces clean and disinfected.
