Recoveries and active cases


When does an active case become a recovery?

In order to leave isolation, national guidelines say asymptomatic and mild cases must not have symptoms for at least 10 days since the first positive test sample was taken or onset of symptoms. States and territories apply these guidelines differently. For more details, as well as responses from health departments confirming their processes, please read the data notes
