I am well but I had tested positive for COVID-19. What should I do?



  • If you have mild acute respiratory infection, you should recover at home with appropriate infection prevention control measures.

  • If you are unwell, but need to leave your home, please adopt all the following precautions:

    • Always wear a mask.

    • Avoid crowded places, including hospitals and nursing homes.

    • Avoid contact with vulnerable persons such as the elderly.

  • If you have severe, prolonged, or worsening ARI symptoms, you should seek medical help.

    • Medically vulnerable persons (i.e. seniors and those with chronic medical conditions) that have ARI symptoms, as well as persons with severe, prolonged or worsening ARI symptoms, should see a doctor. The updated advisory for persons who are at increased risk of severe COVID-19 can be found at this link.

    • Persons with mild ARI symptoms should stay at home until symptoms resolve.

  • If you test positive with an ART test, you should regard yourself as being infected with COVID-19.

    • Avoid close contact with others while still symptomatic. You may return to normal activities when your symptoms resolve.

  • If you have a need to go out while symptomatic, please exercise social responsibility to avoid infecting others

    • Wear a mask, minimise your social interactions and avoid crowded places, do not visit vulnerable settings such as hospitals and nursing homes, and avoid contact with vulnerable persons, such as the elderly.
