When can I leave isolation after testing positive for COVID-19?
You must isolate for at least five days or up to 7 days from the day you took your rapid antigen test or PCR test.
If you have no symptoms on your fifth day of isolation, you are free to leave isolation that day. If you leave isolation after five days, for the following two days you cannot visit or work at a hospital or aged care facility (including disability and aged care in the home).
If you have symptoms on your fifth day, you must continue to isolate for 7 days. It is strongly recommended that people stay home until their symptoms resolve.
