If I am sick, do I have to stay home?

Yes. If you have any signs of COVID-19 (fever, shortness of breath, cough) then you must stay home until you no longer have fever for 72 hours, AND your symptoms have improved, AND 14 days have passed since you first had symptoms. These are based on CDC guidelines. Although, a good general rule of thumb, year round, is to stay home if you are sick or showing symptoms to prevent spreading any illness to those around you.
