If you test positive for COVID-19
It is no longer a legal requirement for people diagnosed with COVID-19 to isolate.
If you test positive for COVID-19, you must not visit high-risk settings like aged and disability care facilities and hospitals, unless seeking immediate medical care, until at least 7 days after testing positive and you have no symptoms of COVID-19.
For the 7 days following your positive test result, you may consider additional precautionary measures to protecting the health of your loved ones, and those most at risk from severe COVID illness in the community.
To help protect friends and family around you:
Avoid contact with people who are at higher risk of severe disease.
Wear a mask when in an indoor setting outside the home
Practise careful hand and respiratory hygiene
Workers providing close personal care in high-risk environments such as residential aged and disability care facilities and hospitals must not attend work for 7 days after testing positive for COVID-19 and while symptoms persist.
