Testing Positive for COVID-19

So you tested positive for COVID-19, what now?

1. Call your doctor!

2. Start isolating.


    • Please isolate in your home for at least 5 full days from either your symptom start date or the date of your positive test.
    • If you're still feeling sick, DO NOT LEAVE ISOLATION AFTER DAY FIVE. Stay at home.
    • Your symptoms must be gone for 24 hours or more to be cleared from isolation.
    • If possible, start isolating from people in your home: stay in a separate room, if possible use a different bathroom from the rest of your household or clean the bathroom well after each use. Wear a mask if you are around other family members, and don’t prepare meals with your family if possible.

3. Call your close contacts!

    • Call anyone who you were in close contact with for the two days before your positive test or two days before you started developing symptoms. Let them know that they potentially have been exposed to COVID and need to take appropriate steps.
    • Your close contacts may also need to quarantine and should get tested about 3-5 days after exposure. Learn more about where to get tested in Revere here.

4. Call 3-1-1 (781-286-8311) if you are a Revere resident in need of food or supplies in order to complete your isolation.
