Austin Public Health's Guidance has been that if you are not vaccinated (whether or not you have had COVID in the past) and have traveled or gathered indoors with people from outside your immediate household you are recommended to:

1) Stay home for a week and get tested for COVID-19 within the next few days. Public health officials recommend waiting at least three to five days to get tested, since the virus can take several days to infect someone.

2) If you don’t get tested, the health authority is asking that you stay home for two weeks.
