What should I do while I'm waiting for test results?

Take these next steps while you wait for test results. While you're waiting for your test results, it's important that you isolate yourself. Do not have contact with others. Do not go to work, meet up with friends or attend gatherings. Isolating yourself will prevent spread of the virus should you test positive.
