A contact event is generally described as:
1) being within six feet of a COVID-19 positive individual for 15 minutes or more cumulatively over a 24 hour period;
2) being in an enclosed area or workspace (ie: office) with a COVID-19 positive individual for 15 minutes or more;
3) contact with respiratory or bodily fluid (ie: coughed or sneezed on, touched infected surface, etc.) by a COVID-19 positive individual.
These are only guidelines. Trace teams receive additional training and guidance on which interactions constitute a close contact.
