Why you should self-isolate
Self-isolation means avoiding situations where you could infect other people. It is a good way to help prevent the spread of infections like COVID-19.
When you are exposed to an illness, there is a time between the exposure and when you start to feel sick. This incubation period is usually 2 to 10 days for COVID-19, but can be up to 14 days. Not everyone who is exposed will get sick, but it is necessary to wait the full 2 weeks to be sure you are not infected.
There is a very small chance you can spread the germs before you feel sick, as many people have very mild symptoms at the start of their sickness. Staying home means that if you do start to feel sick, it won’t happen while you are in a public place, which lowers the chance the virus could spread to others.
Who should self-isolate
You must self-isolate for 14 days if you:
- recently returned from travel outside of Canada, even if feeling well (this means staying separated from anyone who did not travel with you, including household members)
- are a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
- have been asked by a health care professional for another reason
If you become sick, you must self-isolate for 10 days from the beginning of any symptoms or until you are feeling well, whichever takes longer.
- Symptoms include: dry cough, fever, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, runny nose, nasal congestion or a sore throat.
How to self-isolate
If you need to self-isolate, follow these guidelines:
- stay home – do not attend work, school, social events or any other public gatherings
- avoid close contact with other people, including members of your household and especially seniors and people with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems
- don’t take public transportation like buses, taxis or ride sharing, where possible
- watch for symptoms in yourself or a family member
If you have any symptoms, including a dry cough, fever, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, runny nose, nasal congestion or a sore throat:
Getting food and supplies
- Use delivery or pick-up services for errands like grocery shopping.
- Ask friends or family to drop off food, medicine and other supplies.
- Wear a surgical mask if you need to leave your home for urgent errands.
Don’t share household items
- If you are self-isolating, don’t share household items like: dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels and pillows.
- After using these items, wash them thoroughly with soap and water, place in the dishwasher for cleaning, or wash in the washing machine.
- Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs and counters.
Wash your hands
- Wash your hands often with soap and water thoroughly for at least 20 seconds.
- Use an alcohol based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available and if your hands are not visibly dirty.
- Don’t touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover your coughs and sneezes
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze.
- Throw used tissues in the garbage and immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Use alcohol based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
How to prepare for self-isolation
Create a household action plan
Talk with the people who need to be included in your plan.
- Meet with household members, other relatives, and friends to discuss what to do if a COVID-19 outbreak occurs in your community and what the needs of each person will be.
- Plan ways to care for those at greater risk of serious complications, such as ensuring you have sufficient medication, and determining what supplies are needed and if they can be delivered.
- Talk with your neighbours about emergency planning.
- Create a list of local organizations you can contact if you need access to information, health care services, support or resources.
- Create an emergency contact list.
Prepare for self-isolation
- Choose a room in your home you can use to separate sick household members from healthy ones.
- Choose a separate bathroom for sick individuals to use, if possible.
- Plan to clean these rooms as needed when someone is sick.
- Have 72 hours’ worth of food and supplies at home. We do not recommend stockpiling goods.
What to do if someone won't self-isolate
If you know someone who is not self-isolating when they should be:
- take proper precautions and distance yourself from them to limit your risk of exposure if they have symptoms
- remind the person that not following public health guidelines puts people at risk
- encourage the person to reach out to community services if they need help to self-isolate
