Have symptoms or Been exposed?


I have been exposed to COVID-19

If you have been in close contact (see below) with a lab-confirmed COVID-19 individual:

  • …and you have been vaccinated, you should get tested 3-5 days after your exposure, even if you don’t have symptoms. You should take a PCR test, NOT a rapid test. You should also wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until your test result is negative. You should isolate for 10 days if your test result is positive – see the section “I do not have symptoms, but have tested positive for COVID-19,” below.
  • …and you have not been fully vaccinated, please follow the steps under “ Quarantine,” below


I have symptoms of COVID-19

Regardless of whether or not you have been vaccinated, if you show the symptoms of COVID-19, you may be infected. Please follow the CDC guidelines:

  • Submit the MGA Self-Report form
  • Stay at home and separate yourself from others – follow the steps under “Isolate – for symptomatic individuals,” below.
  • Monitor your symptoms and seek medical attention if your symptoms are severe
  • Receive a COVID-19 test at least five days after the onset of symptoms


I do not have any symptoms, but have tested positive for COVID-19

If you do not show any symptoms of COVID-19, but have tested positive, regardless of your vaccination status, you should:

  • Submit the MGA Self-Report form
  • Stay at home and separate yourself from others – follow the steps under “Isolate – for asymptomatic individuals,” below.
