Recognized Exposure defined as prolonged
exposure* to an:
• Individual who is ill, laboratory confirmed to have COVID-19
• Individual who is ill, symptoms clinically compatible to COVID-19
• Individual in contact with someone laboratory confirmed to have COVID-19
• Individual in contact with someone ill, symptoms clinically compatible to COVID-19
*Data are insufficient to precisely define the duration of time that constitutes a prolonged exposure. Recommendations vary on the length of time of exposure from 10 minutes or more to 30 minutes or more. Brief interactions are less likely to result in transmission; however, symptoms and the type of interaction (e.g. did the person cough directly into the face of the individual?) remain important.
