Stay home for 10-days from your first symptom. No symptoms? Stay home for 10-days from the date of your positive test.
Keep all unvaccinated close contacts home for 10-days from their last unmasked contact with you. Wear a mask if you have unvaccinated people in your home and do your best to stay 6-feet away from them.

You will receive a phone call from a NY State Investigator or Contact Tracer to complete your case investigation. This may take up to 48-72 hours.
