Treatment Options

If you test positive for COVID-19, please isolate yourself from others right away. The recommended period of isolation for most people per the CDC is at least five days followed by masking around others for five additional days. Unless you are specifically instructed to do so by your physician or employer, you do not have to test negative in order to end isolation after this period. PCR tests can remain positive for a long time after illness due to remnants of the virus that are no longer infectious.
