Daily Public Health Check-in
Help protect yourself and others while you’re self-isolating.
You’re legally required to self-isolate if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been told by Public Health that you’re a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case or may have been exposed to COVID-19 and need to self-isolate.
During your self-isolation, you need to complete a daily check-in with Public Health. It’s important that you complete your check-in every day so Public Health can monitor your health and support you while you’re self-isolating.
Register for daily check-ins
You can register for the Daily Public Health Check-in to complete your check-ins online. You need to check-in each day until your isolation end date (provided by Public Health). You need to self-isolate for 14 days or as directed by Public Health, even if you don’t have symptoms.
