Isolating and quarantining help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by reducing the number of people you could infect if you're sick. Both require staying home and avoiding situations where the virus could spread.
Albertans are legally required to:
- Isolate for 10 days if you tested positive or have any core symptoms that are not related to a pre-existing illness or health condition.
- Quarantine for 14 days* if you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, and you are not fully vaccinated. (*Duration of quarantine may be reduced based on vaccination status.)
- If you have symptoms, take the online assessment to arrange testing.
