What to do if you've tested positive for COVID-19

Don't panic.

If you've been informed of a positive test result, isolate yourself from others, including people in your own household until you meet all of the following criteria: 24-hours fever free with no medicine, improving symptoms AND 5 days have passed since the symptoms first appeared.

It's important for you to be proactive and keep track of dates and your symptoms. Be sure to contact friends and family who you saw within the last five days as well and advise them to be on the lookout for COVID-19 symptoms.

Once you're out of isolation, wear a well-fitting mask for at least 5 days after showing no symptoms when in public and around others at home.

If you are unable to wear a mask, isolate for 10 days.

If you would like to report your test result to the Oklahoma State Department of Health and aid in the continued effort to track COVID-19, please
