Close contact is defined as a) being within approximately 6 feet (2 meters), or within the room or care area, of a COVID-19 case for a prolonged period of time while not
wearing recommended personal protective equipment or PPE (e.g., gowns, gloves, NIOSH-certified disposable N95 respirator, eye protection); close contact can include
caring for, living with, visiting, or sharing a healthcare waiting area or room with a COVID-19 case; or b) having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case
(e.g., being coughed on) while not wearing recommended personal protective equipment. Data to inform the definition of close contact are limited. Considerations when
assessing close contact include the duration of exposure (e.g., longer exposure time likely increases exposure risk) and the clinical symptoms of the person with COVID-19
(e.g., coughing likely increases exposure risk as does exposure to a severely ill patient). Special consideration should be given to those exposed in health care settings.
