Contact Tracing notification process
Alberta Health Services (AHS) updated its Contact Tracing Notification Process. AHS asks that every person who tests positive for COVID-19 (confirmed directly by AHS) notify their own close contacts. Close contacts of people with positive test results must self-isolate and should be tested for COVID-19.
Close contacts are defined as anyone that had contact with a case for more than 15 minutes total and within two meters. People are considered close contacts even if they were wearing a mask of any kind. For sports that involve close, sustained or intermittent and repeated contact, all members of the teams playing each other are considered close contacts when there is a case on a team. Close contacts are required to be quarantined for 14 days from the last date of close contact with the case. This means they will not be able to attend work, or any public place, during that timeframe.
