IN OTHER NEWS:
Contact tracing involves interviewing the person who has tested positive for COVID-19 to determine their movements while they were infectious and identify close contacts.
A close contact is someone who has been face-to-face for at least 15 minutes, or been in the same closed space for at least 2 hours, as someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 when that person was infectious.
Where individuals are identified as close contacts, the Public Health Unit tells these contacts they must isolate themselves for 14 days after they were last in contact with the case.
A daily check-up process is set up for these people to monitor their health. This is done via an SMS process.
