Quarantine: It is correct that 10 day quarantine is recommended from test date. I am assuming that your test was negative but it is important for you not to return to work if you were having fever or symptoms of cough, sore throat or other viral type illness. If you are not having these symptoms and you reach the 10 day mark your quarantine should be complete.
