What You Should Do IF You Caught COVID-19

If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, it is crucial to prevent the virus’s transmission to others and manage your symptoms. Here are some recommendations for individuals with COVID-19:

  1. Implement quarantine measures: To prevent the spread of the virus, it is essential to isolate yourself from others, if possible. If you live with others, designate a room with a closed door and a separate bathroom, if available, for your use during the quarantine period. If separation is impossible, maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others and wear a face mask when nearby.

To reduce the risk of contracting and transmitting COVID-19, it is also essential to continue practising preventive measures, such as frequently washing your hands, wearing a face mask, and maintaining physical distance from others. If you have been in close contact with an individual with COVID-19, it is essential to follow quarantine and testing guidelines to protect yourself and others.
