New COVID Guidelines
Effective March 9, 2022

If you live with someone who has symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19

You do not need to isolate if one of the following applies to you: 

  • you have previously tested positive in the last 90 days and do not have symptoms
  • you are over 18 years old and have received a COVID-19 booster dose
  • you are under 18 years old and are fully vaccinated

Instead for 10 days after exposure:

  • self-monitor for symptoms
  • wear a mask and avoid activities where mask removal would be necessary
  • do not visit anyone who is at higher risk of illness, such as seniors, or any highest risk settings (unless you previously tested positive in past 90 days)

If you do not meet any of the criteria above, you must isolate while the person with symptoms/positive test result isolates (or for 10 days if you are immunocompromised).

If you’ve been exposed to someone from another household with symptoms of COVID-19 or a positive test result

You are required to:
  • self-monitor for symptoms for 10 days after your last exposure
  • wear a mask, avoid activities where mask removal is necessary (such as dining out, high contact sports) and follow all other public health measures if leaving home
  • do not visit any highest-risk settings (such as long-term care or retirement homes) or people who may be at higher risk of illness (such as seniors) for 10 days after your last exposure

If you live, work, attend, volunteer, or have been admitted in one of the highest-risk settings

You are required to:

  • tell them you’ve been exposed
  • avoid going there for 10 days from your last exposure, unless you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days and have no symptoms.
The highest-risk settings include:
  • hospitals and health care settings, including complex continuing care facilities and acute care facilities
  • congregate living settings, such as long-term care and retirement homes, First Nation elder care lodges, group homes, shelters, hospices, temporary foreign worker settings, correctional institutions and Provincial Demonstration Schools and hospital schools
  • home and community care settings

To help ensure sufficient staffing levels, workers in these settings may be asked to return to work earlier than 10 days, with additional precautions such as testing. Speak with your employer for more information.
