If you or someone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19, follow isolation and quarantine measures to minimize spread to others. If a member of a household tests positive, other members of the household should self-quarantine until 14 days after the person has recovered, and should consider themselves positive if they develop symptoms. They should also follow the isolation and quarantine measures found on the CDC website. Anyone who tests positive or is in contact with someone who tested positive should NOT go to work.
If your test for COVID-19 is negative and you do not have any symptoms, but someone in your household is positive, you should self-quarantine until 14 days after they have fully recovered. This is true unless you have no contact with the sick household member. However, like all residents of San Antonio and Bexar County, you must adhere to the Emergency Declaration No. 6 announced by Mayor Ron Nirenberg and County Judge Nelson Wolff on April 29, 2020. You should stay at home and only leave your home to take care of your basic needs, such as food, healthcare, and exercise. Even if you don’t feel sick, it’s still important to practice good hand hygiene and social distancing.
