How long do you need to isolate after testing positive for COVID-19?
When can you be around others after being severely ill with COVID-19?
How long do COVID-19 patients continue to shed the virus?
Do I need to isolate if I have recovered from COVID-19?
Even if you have recovered from COVID-19, if you develop symptoms of COVID-19 you should isolate, not travel, and consult with a healthcare provider for testing recommendations.
How long can a person’s test remain positive for COVID-19?
Can patients who have recovered from COVID-19 continue to have detectable SARS-CoV-2 RNA in upper respiratory specimens?
Can you get reinfected with COVID-19?
Reinfections can and have happened even shortly after recovery, the researchers said. And they will become increasingly common as immunity wanes and new SARS-CoV-2 variants arise.
Are recovered persons with persistent positive test of COVID-19 infectious to others?
Persons who have tested persistently or recurrently positive for SARS-CoV-2 RNA have, in some cases, had their signs and symptoms of COVID-19 improve. When viral isolation in tissue culture has been attempted in such persons in South Korea and the United States, live virus has not been isolated. There is no evidence to date that clinically recovered persons with persistent or recurrent detection of viral RNA have transmitted SARS-CoV-2 to others.
Despite these observations, it’s not possible to conclude that all persons with persistent or recurrent detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA are no longer infectious. There is no firm evidence that the antibodies that develop in response to SARS-CoV-2 infection are protective. If these antibodies are protective, it’s not known what antibody levels are needed to protect against reinfection.
Should I get the COVID-19 vaccine if I have recovered from COVID-19?
How strong is immunity after a COVID-19 infection?
How Strong Is Immunity After a COVID-19 Infection? About 90% of people develop some number of protective antibodies after a COVID-19 infection, according to the CDC. But how high those levels climb appears to be all over the map.
Should the person who has clinically recovered from COVID-19 continue to wear a cloth face covering in public?
Who should not take the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine?

If you had a severe allergic reaction after getting a dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, you should not get another dose of an mRNA vaccine.
Should you get the COVID-19 vaccine if you have been treated with monoclonal antibodies?
People who were treated for COVID-19 with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma or people who have a history of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in adults or children (MIS-A or MIS-C) may need to wait a while after recovering before they can get vaccinated.
Can you get the COVID-19 vaccine if you were treated with antibodies or plasma?
Who is not eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine?
Can I get the COVID-19 vaccine if I have an underlying condition?
Is it safe to get the COVID-19 vaccine if I have chronic liver disease?
Patients with chronic liver disease can receive the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it is available to them. Although the immunogenicity of vaccines has not been fully described in this population, vaccination has been associated with lower risk of COVID-19 in patients with cirrhosis.
Who should not take the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine?
If you have had a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) or an immediate allergic reaction, even if it was not severe, to any ingredient in the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine (such as polysorbate), you should not get the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine.
Can I get the COVID-19 vaccine if I am obese?
