STAY HOME WHEN YOU ARE SICK      Link to print version of how to respond to COVID-19


  • People who have symptoms of COVID-19
  • People who have had close contact (within six feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with someone with confirmed COVID-19


  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Isolation is for sick people and people who test positive for COVID-19. You can be COVID positive, asymptomatic (not feel sick) and still require isolation. You are contagious. 

It means staying away from others until:

  • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms started or the date of your positive test, if you have symptoms and
  • At least no fever for 24 hours (without medicine that lowers fevers) and
  • Other symptoms are getting better

Quarantine is for people who have been around someone who has symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19. It means staying away from others for 14 days. If you get the virus, quarantine keeps you from spreading it to others. During quarantine, if you get sick or have a positive COVID-19 test, you should isolate for 10 days from your first symptom or from the day of your positive test result, if you have symptoms.

Where can I get my child tested in Orange County?

  • Please start by calling your Pediatrician. They may be providing this service or have a plan of action already in place.
    Follow the guidelines of your school and the local Department of Health.

What if my child doesn’t have a regular Doctor or they don’t do testing?

  • Below is a list of locations that are currently providing testing for children. Some of them
    are also testing adults. We encourage you to call the location or check their website for the
    most up to date details. Testing protocols change almost weekly.

What if my child doesn’t have health insurance? I can’t afford an ER visit right now.

  • There are free testing sites. They are using the exact same tests that ERs, Urgent cares and Doctor’s offices are using.
