COVID-19 Isolation/Quarantine Self- Assessment
Were you exposed to someone who tested postive for COVID-19?
Individuals are considered an exposure if they had close contact with a person with known or suspected COVID-19 while they were infectious.
Close contact is defined as being within 6 feet of an infected person (laboratory-confirmed or a clinical diagnosis) for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period (for example, three individual 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes).
A person with COVID-19 is considered to be infectious starting from 2 days before they have symptoms (or, for an asymptomatic individual, 2 days before the positive test), until they meet criteria for ending isolation.
Note: This is irrespective of whether the person with COVID-19 or the contact was wearing a mask or whether the contact was wearing respiratory personal protective equipment (PPE)
