I Have COVID, Now What?

If you test positive for COVID, isolate for 5 days in your home, and wear a mask in public for an additional 5 days. An at-home rapid test on day 5 is recommended prior to ending your home isolation. A PCR test may be positive for several weeks after a COVID infection. A negative test is not required prior to ending isolation. For more information, please see our guidance on isolation, quarantine and contact notification. 

At-Home Rapid Tests

At-home tests are not required to be reported. However, if you test positive, we please see our guidance on isolation, quarantine and contact notification.

You can now obtain up to four(4) rapid tests per household through the new federal testing program. Please note that it may take 7-10 days for receipt of the tests. A limited supply of free at-home rapid tests are available for pick up at the Fishers Health Department Clinic at 8937 Technology Drive, Fishers, IN 46038.
