What if my child is in contact with someone with COVID-19?

It depends on if they are a “close contact” or not. A “close contact” is someone who was less than 1m from your child for more than 15 minutes and either one or both people were not wearing a mask.

  • Home contact:  will be a close contact, so your child needs to stay home for 14 days, even if they are well and not showing any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • School contact:  If the person (teacher or another learner) is a close contact, your child must also stay home for 14 days.
  • If not a close contact, there is no need to stay home.
