Close contacts

You are a close contact if you:

  • live in the same house as someone who tests positive

  • spent 4 hours or longer with someone in a home, or health or aged care environment

  • are determined as one by your state or territory health department.

If you are a close contact of someone who has COVID-19 you must isolate for 7 days (10 days in South Australia) from the last time you were in contact with that person.

If you have symptoms you should visit your nearest testing clinic as soon as possible.

If you have no symptoms you should take a rapid antigen test at home.

Rapid antigen tests will become increasingly available at supermarkets and pharmacies. Do not go to a GP for a rapid antigen test if you are sick.
