Self-quarantines are meant to limit the movement of people who have been potentially exposed to the virus but have not tested positive for it. While under self-quarantine, you should stay at home to self-monitor for the entirety of the virus' 14-day incubation period. Symptoms you should be mindful of include fevers, cough, and shortness of breath. Because the virus can be present in a person without symptoms, health care providers use this period as a precaution in order to monitor for any potential symptoms that might arise. While under self-quarantine, it is expected that you try to remain at home with your family, but out of caution, you should sleep in your own bed, use a separate bathroom and maintain general germ contagion precautions (i.e. good hand hygiene, avoiding sharing cups/drinks, covering your mouth when coughing, etc). It’s also advisable to avoid public transportation at this time, as well as limiting public activities.
