Your COVID-19 Test Result is Positive

*Your test results show that you have COVID-19.

What you should do to prevent passing the infection to other people:

  • Stay home for 5 days from the first day of your symptoms or from the day that you were tested.
  • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave the house.
  • Continue to wear a mask around others for another 5 days.
  • If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.

Inform your employer/school and all people you have recently been in contact with so they can be tested or quarantine.

If you become short of breath at any time, please call us at 617-825-9660 or call your provider to be evaluated.

If you have any questions, please call us back at 617-825-9660.
