What is a close contact:
An infected person can spread COVID-19 starting two days before they have symptoms or two days before testing if they do not have symptoms. For this reason, "close contacts" include anyone in contact with a person with COVID-19 during the two days prior to symptoms or testing, until they meet the criteria to end isolation.
Close contact includes:
- Living with or caring for a person with confirmed COVID-19, OR
- Being within six feet of a person with confirmed COVID-19 for about 15 minutes (with or without a mask), OR
- Someone with COVID-19 coughing on you, kissing you, sharing utensils with you or you had direct contact with their body secretions.
- If you and/or the person with COVID-19 was wearing a face mask or covering during any of the above situations, you are still considered a close contact.
