After a Positive Test

Your public health unit will ask you about:

  • Graphic icon green circle with checkmark

    SYMPTOMS
    What symptoms have you experienced and what have been your symptoms over time?

    Examples of COVID-19 symptoms: fever (37.8 degrees C or greater), new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, difficulty swallowing, change in taste or smell, nausea/ vomiting/ diarrhea/ abdominal pain, runny nose or nasal congestion.

  • Green circle with map icon graphic

    PLACES
    Where have you been in the 14 days prior to when your symptoms started or, if you don’t have symptoms, in the 14 days prior to the day you were tested?

    Make a list of places you have been and include the date, time and address.
    Examples: workplace, school/childcare/camp, places you may have stayed (rooming house, hotel etc.).

  • Green circle graphic icon with three people in center

    CONTACTS
    Who were you less than 2 metres apart from within the 48 hours before you started feeling ill or, if you don’t have symptoms, in the 48 hours before you were tested?

    Practice Contact Tracing: Identify where you have been and who you were physically close to you can help to contain the spread of the virus in our community.

    Make a list of the names, phone numbers, and dates and times of last contact with anyone who:

    • lives in your home
    • works in the same place
    • has been less than 2 metres away for longer than a brief time (i.e., had a chat). Walking by someone is not considered a close contact.
