If you have tested positive for COVID-19 , you must isolate yourself. This means, if you are well enough to stay at home, you must stay isolated until your public health authority advises that it is safe to leave isolation. Public health officers will contact you every day to check on your condition and let you know when it’s safe to return to normal activities.
If your symptoms are not improving or are getting worse, call a doctor for an urgent appointment.
If you develop a severe case, you will be isolated in hospital.
If you are at risk of having COVID-19, because you have been in contact with someone who has a confirmed or probable case, you have returned home from overseas, or you are entering a state or territory that has a required quarantine period, you must quarantine yourself.
This means staying isolated at home or in a hotel room for 14 days, to see if you become ill. If you have symptoms during this time, you need to be tested for COVID-19 and if the result is positive, you move into a new period of isolation.
Even if the result is negative, you should stay quarantined for 14 days.
