WHO should you tell?
Call or email all those you had contact with who are at high-risk including elders, people with chronic diseases, and first responders and health workers. Doctors define “close contact” as 10 minutes or more of face-to-face interaction.
A sample phone call or email could be:
“I have been feeling a bit ill, so I got tested for COVID-19. I am waiting for the results now but I want to let you know that you may want to self-quarantine, get tested and let everybody around you know. I apologize for putting you in this uncomfortable position. The most important thing is that you stay safe.”
