Most people who test positive for COVID-19 will have mild symptoms that can be treated at home. Even if you have no symptoms, this information will help keep you and your loved ones safe.
It’s important to let anyone you’ve been in contact with know about your status. If your symptoms worsen or you’re concerned, contact your doctor.
What you need to know
If you get COVID-19, you should stay at home until your symptoms have gone. Check your health department's website for the latest information.
If your symptoms are mild, you should be able to recover safely at home. Monitor and treat your symptoms.
Some people may be eligible for antiviral treatments. Speak to a doctor to check if you may be eligible.
Let anyone you recently had contact with know so they can monitor for symptoms, including household contacts, family, friends and co-workers.
If you’re aged over 65, are pregnant or have an ongoing health condition, contact your GP or local health service for advice.
If your symptoms get worse, use the Symptom Checker to see if you need medical help. If your symptoms become severe, call triple zero (000), or go to a hospital emergency department.
