Self-Manage – Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 should self-isolate immediately at home or in another suitable environment, regardless of your vaccination status. It is recommended that you self-isolate for five days from the date of test or 24 hours since any fever has resolved without the aid of fever-reducing medications and all other symptoms are improving for at least 48 hours, whichever is later.
Up to 10 days after testing positive, continue to reduce exposures to others by distancing, wearing a mask, practicing respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene and limiting contacts especially with people at high risk for severe disease (older, immune compromised, etc.) and settings with people at high risk such as visiting long term care.
COVID-19 testing and isolation guidelines for Saskatchewan residents have recently been updated.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you can assume you have COVID-19 and likely the Omicron variant. You do not need to be tested by PCR to confirm, and you should use an at-home rapid test, which are available for free at 600+ locations in the province. If you don’t get tested, stay home and away from other people until your symptoms get better. If you test negative on a rapid test but you still have symptoms, stay home and away from other people until you feel better, even if you have multiple negative rapid tests.
