Covid True or False 2 and 3

2) Two weeks after a positive test you can not give it to someone else?

For mild cases TRUE
10 days if you have no symptoms. Medicating your symptoms? -- you still have symptoms!

3) this 2 week window applies to long haulers with symptoms as well?
FALSE

For severe cases it may be up to 20 days before you are safe.

For patients with mild to moderate COVID-19, replication-competent virus has not been recovered after 10 days following symptom onset

Recovery of replication-competent virus between 10 and 20 days after symptom onset has been documented in some persons with severe COVID-19

...

For most persons with COVID-19 illness, isolation and precautions can generally be discontinued 10 days after symptom onset1 and resolution of fever for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing medications, and with improvement of other symptoms.
A limited number of persons with severe illness may produce replication-competent virus beyond 10 days that may warrant extending duration of isolation and precautions for up to 20 days after symptom onset; consider consultation with infection control experts.
For persons who never develop symptoms, isolation and other precautions can be discontinued 10 days after the date of their first positive RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 RNA.
