The SHA said a contact investigation immediately follows when an individual tests positive for COVID-19.

Health officials said if they determine there is an increased risk of exposure to the public, they direct a public service announcement (PSA) to be issued requiring impacted individuals to self-isolate.

They added that the PSA is not a commentary on a location or a business and its practices and that reasonable efforts are made to inform the business or location in advance of public notification.
