    NEW COVID-19 GUIDELINES: How to prevent the spread of COVID-19 when you're sick

    Post-COVID-19 diagnosis, individuals may return to normal activities once the following conditions are met. For at least 24 hours,

    1. Your symptoms have improved overall, and
    2. You have not had a fever (without using fever-reducing medication).

    Individuals should exercise caution for the 5 days after returning to normal activities. This includes practicing proper hygiene, wearing well-fitted masks, and maintaining physical distance, especially around immunocompromised individuals.

    **If an individual experiences a fever or worsening of symptoms after resuming normal activities, they should stay home and avoid contact with others until meeting the conditions listed above.
