Guidance for Close Contacts of Someone with COVID-19
If you have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19, an employee from the DPHSS (contact tracer) might call to inform you that you have been exposed. They will ask you to stay at home and self-quarantine. 

Close contact means you were within 6 feet of a person with COVID-19 for at least 15 minutes. Guidance from DPHSS is you should stay at home and self-quarantine for 14 days, starting from the most recent day that you were possibly exposed to COVID-19. The contact tracer will inform you of the dates of your self-quarantine.

  • Self-quarantine means staying home, monitoring yourself, and maintaining social distancing (at least 6 feet from others at all times). You should remain in a specific room separate from other non-exposed people and pets in your home, and use a separate bathroom, if possible.
  • If you need to be around other people or animals in or outside of the home, wear a cloth face covering. This will help protect the people around you.
  • If you need support or assistance with self-quarantine, then your health department or community organizations may be able to provide assistance.
  • Self-quarantine helps slow the spread of COVID-19 and can help keep your friends and neighbors healthy.
Close contacts of someone with COVID-19 should monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19 and notify DPHSS if symptoms develop. Seek medical care if symptoms become severe. Severe symptoms include trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, confusion, inability to wake or stay awake, or bluish lips or face.
