Self-isolate!: Yes, that is how the virus spreads You need to self-isolate for 14 days, because you may spread the virus if you have caught it, even if you do not show symptoms. If you do develop symptoms, contact your doctor to discuss these. Your doctor will refer you for testing if necessary.

Yes: You should isolate yourself from others for at least 14 days, and if you develop symptoms, add 7 more days without any symptoms at all before going into circulation. Call your physician for added advice about testing.
