What to do if You Become Sick after Attending a Gathering

  • Know when to get tested for COVID-19You can visit your state or health department’s website to look for the latest local information on testing.
  • Know when to quarantine.
    • If you are unvaccinated
      • Stay home for 14 days after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19.
      • Watch for fever (100.4°F), cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.
      • If possible, stay away from others, especially people who are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19.
  • If you are fully vaccinated
    • Get tested 3-5 days after the exposure, even if you don’t have any symptoms.
    • Wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following the exposure or until your test result is negative.
