Q: When Do I have to Isolate?

If you have a fever, whatever the cause, you must self-isolate for 24 hours after the fever has passed.

If you have other COVID-19 symptoms and you have had COVID-19 in the past two months, you do not need to self-isolate again. Until the symptoms have resolved, it is highly recommended that you wear a mask during any social interaction and avoid contact with vulnerable people

If you have COVID-19

You must self-isolate for at least 5 days. The period of self-isolation starts with the onset of symptoms or, in the absence of symptoms, the date when the sample was taken.

After 5 days, if your symptoms improve and you have not had a fever for 24 hours, without taking medication for fever, you may resume your essential activities (school, work) while respecting certain instructions.

If you are unvaccinated, you must also obtain a negative result to resume your activities after the 5 days of self-isolation. If the result is positive, you must continue your self-isolation.

During the next few days (5 days):

Wear a mask during any social interaction and at the College.

  • Avoid contact with vulnerable people.
  • Avoid participating in non-essential social events.
  • Keep a distance of 2 metres from other people. Please ensure to eat alone or ensure a 2 metre distance when eating.

After 10 days, you may resume your activities as usual while taking steps to limit the spread of the virus.

If you are immunocompromised, you must self-isolate for at least 10 days. After these 10 days, if your symptoms improve and you have not had a fever in the past 24 hours, without taking medication for a fever, you can resume your activities.

These self-isolation instructions also apply to people who present COVID-19 symptoms and have not done a screening test.
