I DO NOT HAVE symptoms No restrictions are necessary, go about your daily routine as normal.

You may be required to self-isolate.

Check with your health care provider.

Work from home unless you develop symptoms.

No restrictions are necessary unless:

 

a)your healthcare provider recommends otherwise; or

b)the ‘probable case’ becomes a ‘confirmed case’.

What is Close Personal Contact?

Spending more than 15 minutes in face-to-face contact, within 2 meters of an infected person.

Living in the same house or shared accommodation as an infected person.

What’s the difference between self-isolation and limited social contact?

Self-isolation means that you cannot leave your house (ideally a single room in your home if you live with other people).

Limited social contact means that you can go outside for a run, walk, or cycle on your own but that you should avoid ‘close personal contact’.
