Regardless of your protection against COVID-19, when you display symptoms, you must self-isolate and, if possible, conduct a rapid test at home . If you do not have access to a rapid test, you must complete the COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool or call 1-877-644-4545 to discover the procedure to follow.
The criteria below apply for the management of COVID-19 cases and their contacts. To find out the criteria applying to the vaccination passport, see the COVID-19 vaccination passport page. For information on all the activities and places the passport is applied, see the Places and Activities requiring the COVID-19 Vaccination Passport page.
The rapid increase in circulation of the Omicron variant and the projections of majority community transmission are prompting a revision of the definition of a person considered protected.
The limited available data on the efficacy of the vaccine against the Omicron variant does not currently support the assumption that a person who has received two doses of vaccine is adequately protected against infection with this variant. However, the data does suggest that this person would be effectively protected from hospitalization with this variant. It is therefore strongly recommended that you get vaccinated and receive the third dose.

In Québec, in the context of the management of COVID-19 cases and their contacts, people are considered to be adequately protected when one of the following situations applies:
- they have received a second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in the past seven or more days (AstraZeneca, Covishield, Moderna, Pfizer or a combination of these vaccines);
- they have received a dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine (outside Québec) in the past 14 or more days;
- they got COVID-19 more than six months ago and received a dose of vaccine in the past seven or more days;
- they got COVID-19 in the past six months.
These situations do not apply to people who are immunocompromised. These people should contact Info-Santé 811 or talk to their physicians to obtain more information on what will enable them to be adequately protected.
When a person has had contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, they should follow the instructions for people who have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.
