If you have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19, you may be infected.
Close contact means that you live with or have been in settings of less than one metre from those who have the disease. In these cases, it is best to stay at home.
Do the following:
- If you become ill, even with very mild symptoms you must self-isolate for 7 days, unless a longer period is recommended by a medical practitioner.
- Even if you don’t think you have been exposed to COVID-19 but develop symptoms, then self-isolate and monitor yourself.
- You are more likely to infect others in the early stages of the disease when you just have mild symptoms, therefore early self-isolation is very important.
