What to do if you get Covid

Knowing what to do if you test positive for COVID-19 will help you and your family get through it with less stress.

Department of Health guidelines require you to quarantine at home for 7 days.

People you live with or have spent more than four hours with at home must also quarantine for 7 days.

Tell friends and family you have spent time with recently, your employer and the school or day care centre your child attends that you have tested positive for COVID-19.

Explain you have spent time together and they should get tested.

They can access up to date information at coronavirus.vic.gov.au/checklist-cases

Monitor your symptoms

If you are:

  • feeling a little unwell but generally okay (able to walk around the house and do normal activities) rest, drink lots of water, eat healthily and keep taking your usual medications.
