Priya Subramanian, MD, an infectious disease specialist at Medical City North Hills, says there are three factors to be considered as to when a person can end a COVID-19 self-quarantine:
- If you have tested positive for COVID-19 and are exhibiting symptoms
- Have no symptoms for at least three days without medication (e.g. no cough, no trouble breathing, no fever, etc.)
- This generally occurs about 10 days after showing symptoms
- If you have tested positive for COVID-19 and are asymptomatic (i.e. NOT exhibiting symptoms)
- Self-isolate for 10 days after the positive test
- When you come in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19
- Self-isolate from 14 days from the date of contact
