I’m 49 male, my office colleague’s husband tested positive covid19 on 31/8 then she stay home few days and then develop flu symptom on 2/9/21. So she go get swap tested positive on 3/9/21 (colleague in different department room, same floor and share use copy, fax machines, we all wear mask in office).
I am staying with wife and a son. I have bought a RTK oral fluid test kit standby. No symptom yet for now.
So how many days should we self quarantine ? When to use the test kit ? Please advise the procedures.
Need i update my MySej status to add close contact with covid19 positive person?
Thanks.
