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 a person who is exposed to a confirmed COVID-19 case, in a close proximity of 1 metre or less, for a period of not less than 15 minutes OR A person who is in direct physical contact with a positive case (e.g. handshake) two days before the positive case showed symptoms or two days before the positive case got the PCR test done or during the 10 days of the illness.

If you were a close contact, YOU MUST INFORM US IMMEDIATELY and quarantine according to DHA guidelines. 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.
