Hello, thank you for contacting us regarding your question.

From your explanation, seems that your wife had a close contact with a Covid positive patient and is currently under home quarantine. Additionally, she underwent Covid testing and it was negative.

Since your wife has been tested negative despite having symptoms, the possibility of you contracting the virus is low, therefore you may carry on with your daily activities. However, we advise you to practice social distancing, wear a face mask and practice good hand hygiene.
We also advise you to perform the daily health assessment risk for 14 days. If you developed symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath, please refer to a clinic for further assessment.

Please contact CPRC at 0388810200/+60178429454 if you need more assistance.
