      You will be contagious for 10 days.

      Será contagioso/a durante 10 días.

      And since we do not know with certainty how long they will be contagious, I may say:

      You may remain contagious for up to 10 days after the onset of symptoms.

      Puede seguir siendo contagioso/a hasta 10 días después del inicio de los síntomas.
