When can someone resume normal activities after having symptoms of COVID-19?

It varies by individual but in general an individual can return to normal activities if it has been at least 10 days since the symptoms started, symptoms have improved, and the individual has been fever free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication. 

If you have tested positive, but have experienced no symptoms, you can return to activities 10 days following the date of your test.
