To report a confirmed positive COVID-19 case, use the online form for reporting positive COVID-19 cases via the MyCompton portal.

The "COVID-19 Positive Follow-Up Questionnaire" is available via the MyCompton portal and includes questions necessary to determine quarantine and isolation guidelines and assist with contact tracing.

You are required to:

  1. Wear a highly protective mask around others for 10 days
  2. Get tested 3-5 days after you were last exposed
    If your test result is positive, isolate
    If you tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days, you don't need to test unless you get symptoms
  3. Monitor your health for 10 days
    If symptoms start, stay home and get tested.

*Some close contacts are required to quarantine, for example if they are not fully vaccinated and are staying in a high-risk setting. Quarantine means staying away from others in case you become infected. Some people who are close contacts may choose to quarantine as an extra precaution to limit their exposures.

Note: Day 0 is the day of your last contact (exposure) with the infected person. Day 1 is the first full day after your last exposure.
