If you get COVID-19
If you are tested for the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and your results come back positive, it may be scary and stressful. Most people who become ill with COVID-19 will recover with rest and care. It is important to monitor your symptoms and follow guidance from your health care provider, as well as to avoid exposing other people to the illness.
People who have COVID-19 should restrict all activities outside of their home except to seek medical care, which should be coordinated with their medical provider. They should separate themselves from people and animals in their home. People who are ill with more severe symptoms may be hospitalized for care.
