What if I came into contact with someone who has tested positive?
It depends whether you were in "close contact" or not.
According to DHA, a close contact is any individual who spent time with a confirmed COVID-19 for more than 15 minutes and if the physical distance maintained was less than 2 meters, whether it was two days before their symptoms appeared or since the person received their positive result or any time during the 10 days of infection.
If you were a close contact, YOU MUST INFORM US IMMEDIATELY and quarantine for 10 days from the date of the last contact with the infected person. We will suspend your account for this period and will extend any active packages for 10 days.
There is no need to undergo a PCR test if you don't have any symptoms. A negative PCR test done right after coming into close contact would be meaningless since the incubation period of the virus is 10 days. But if ANY symptoms appear during the quarantine period, call 800 342 to book a PCR test appointment. If the test result is positive, DHA will contact you for isolation procedures. If the test result is negative, you must complete the 10-day quarantine period.
