What should I do if I think I may have been exposed to COVID-19?

If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, get tested, or contact your healthcare provider or local health department as soon as possible for further instructions.

If you believe you have symptoms of COVID-19 or that you have been exposed to the virus, you should consult your place of work for specific guidance about whether to stay home or continue working. You should adhere to recommendations set forth by your employer or the department of health, as they may differ from the CDC’s guidelines.
