What do I do if I test positive for Covid-19?

Positive cases need to isolate for 5 days, followed by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others. You should let any close contacts know about their potential exposure. A close contact could be 2 days prior to testing positive or developing symptoms.

If you have tested positive with an OTC test and you want a PCR test to confirm, make an appointment with TestMV.

What do I do if I am a "close contact" of someone who tested positive for Covid-19?

Close contacts who are fully vaxxed and asymptomatic do not need to quarantine. They should monitor for symptoms and if they develop symptoms, even mild symptoms, they should immediately isolate and be tested.

Otherwise, we recommend testing 5 days after exposure. Click here to learn how to make an appointment with TestMV.

If you are unvaccinated, asymptomatic and a close contact, you should quarantine for 5 days, followed by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others. If you can’t quarantine, you must wear a mask for 10 days. On or after Day 5, you are required to get a PCR test at TestMV or Martha’s Vineyard Hospital (508-684-4500).

If you are unvaccinated and symptomatic or develop any symptoms during your quarantine, you must immediately get tested. If you test positive, refer to the requirements and recommendations above.
