Simcoe Muskoka Health




You must self-isolate immediately:

• Fully vaccinated or aged 11 or younger: You MUST isolate IMMEDIATELY for 5 days from symptom onset or from the date of your test, whichever came first.

• Your isolation can end after 5 days IF your symptoms are improved for at least 24 hours (48 hours if gastrointestinal symptoms), and you continue to follow all public health safety measures, such as masking and physical distancing.

• Anyone involved in sports who has completed their 5 day isolation period, who cannot maintain masking and physical distancing requirements, should not return to practice or play for an additional 5 days from the end of your isolation period (10 days from symptom onset or from the date of your test, whichever came first). This is because an infected person may be contagious up to 10 days after symptom onset/date of test.

• Twelve years of age and older and not fully vaccinated or are immunocompromised, regardless of age: You MUST isolate IMMEDIATELY for 10 days after your symptoms began or your positive test result, whichever came first.

• Your isolation can end after 10 days IF your symptoms are improved for at least 24 hours (48 hours if gastrointestinal symptoms), whichever is longer and you continue to follow all public health safety measures, such as masking and physical distancing.

Determining your isolation period:
The date symptoms begin or positive test date (whichever is first) is considered “day 0”. Isolation ends at midnight on the fifth or eleventh day. For example:

• individuals isolating for 5 days - if symptoms develop on February 1st (day 0), the end of isolation date is February 7th (day 6).

• individuals isolating for 10 days – if symptoms develop on February 1st (day 0), the end of isolation date is February 11th (day 11).Additionally:

• Everyone in your household must also isolate for the duration of your isolation period, unless they have previously tested positive in the last 90 days and they currently do not have symptoms.

• Notify your close contacts that they have been exposed and tell them to follow the instructions on this webpage or at ontario.ca/exposed. A close contact is anyone you were less than two metres away from for at least 15 minutes (or multiple shorter lengths of time) before your symptoms began or your positive test result, whichever came first.
