Close contacts

If you test positive your close contacts may also need to restrict their movements (stay at home). What they need to do will depend on their vaccination status, their health and immune system and if they tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 9 months. If they have symptoms, even if they are vaccinated, they need to self-isolate, (stay in their room) and get a COVID-19 test.
