Instructions: Testing Out of Isolation

As of April 1, 2023, individuals may leave COVID-19 isolation if the following criteria are met:

  1. It has been at least 5 days since Day 0 (date of symptom onset, or if asymptomatic, date of positive test)
  2. You have not had a fever in 24 hours and have not taken any fever reducing medications in the last 24 hours.
  3. Your symptoms are improving.

Note: LAC DPH strongly recommends that you get a negative test for COVID-19 before ending isolation between Day 6-10. If you do test, it is best to use antigen tests (including self-tests) to lower the risk of false positives.

Full guidance from the County is available online:

Remember you must continue to wear a mask and should continue to eat alone or outdoors between Day 6 through Day 10.
