Should I self-isolate if I came in contact with someone who had direct contact with someone who tested positive?
If you were a close contact of someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19, it is recommended that you quarantine for 14 days from the last day of contact with that person. If you were around someone who was identified as a close contact of someone diagnosed with COVID-19, then you should monitor for any symptoms. You would not need to self-quarantine in this case, unless you develop symptoms or if the person identified as a close contact develops COVID-19.
