Someone in my immediate circle tests positive

If you have been in contact with a person who tests positive in the two days before they began to show symptoms or in the five days before the result of their test, you are considered to be a “contact”.

You can assess your level of risk and work out the appropriate measures to take depending on the nature of your contact.

NB: If you have tested positive within the last 60 days, you are not considered to be a “contact”.
