While You Wait for Your Results

You must self-isolate while waiting for your results. You are not required to self-isolate if you were tested as a routine precaution and have no symptoms and no possible exposure to the virus (e.g. visiting a long-term care home). Learn how to self-isolate.

For medical or health advice, call your health care provider or Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000. If you are having difficulty breathing or experiencing other severe symptoms, call 911 immediately. Tell them about your symptoms and exposure history.
