  • Keep your hands clean and away from your face
  • Frequently wash hands with soap for at least 20 sec or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

  • If you have to be in the same room with the infected person always wear a mask and try to make 6 feet distance.

  • Clean your home frequently
  • Every day, use household cleaning sprays or wipes to clean surfaces that are often touched, including counters, tabletops and doorknobs

  • Be careful with laundry
  • Don't shake dirty laundry. Use regular detergent to wash the sick person's laundry. Place dirty gloves and masks in a waste bin with a lid in the sick person's room. Clean and disinfect clothes hampers and wash your hands afterward.

  • Be careful with dishes
  • Wear gloves when handling dishes, cups or utensils used by the sick person. Wash the items with soap and hot water or in the dishwasher. Clean your hands after taking off the gloves or handling used items.

  • Avoid direct contact with the sick person's bodily fluids
  • Wear disposable gloves and a face mask when providing oral and respiratory care and when handling stool, urine or other waste. Wash your hands before and after removing your gloves and mask. Don't reuse your mask or gloves.

Ending isolation or quarantine

Talk to the doctor about when to end home isolation, especially if you have a weakened immune system. The CDC recommends the following guidelines for ending home isolation after you think or know you had COVID-19.

  • If you won't have a test to determine if you're still contagious, you can leave your sick room or home if at least 10 days have passed since your symptoms started, at least 24 hours have passed with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medicine and other symptoms are improving. Loss of taste and smell might last for weeks or months after recovery but shouldn't delay ending isolation
  • If you'll be tested to determine if you're still contagious, your doctor will let you know when you can be around others based on your test results. Most people don't need testing to decide when they can be around others.
