Close Contacts

COVID-19 is spread through close contact with an infected person. A close contact is typically someone who had a prolonged exposure in close proximity to a person diagnosed with COVID-19.  There are a variety of situations in which you may be exposed to someone who has recently tested positive for COVID-19.

If you think you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, use this self-assessment to help determine how to seek further care.

Visit the Province of Ontario website for information on what to do if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19
