When to isolate while awaiting COVID-19 test results

As the pandemic continues, we have been receiving many questions on when to isolate if you have been tested for COVID-19 and are waiting for results.

Manitoba Public Health advises to isolate at home while you are waiting to get your test results.  If your COVID-19 test results are negative, but you have symptoms, and have travelled or been exposed to a case, you will need to continue to self-isolate (quarantine) for the entire 14 days and until you have been symptom free for 24 hours.

If your COVID-19 test results are negative and you have not travelled or been exposed to a case, you need to isolate until you have been symptom free for 24 hours. If your COVID-19 test results are positive, you must continue to isolate and a public health official will call you.
