Updated Definition of Close Contact


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as L.A. County Department of Public Health, recently updated its definition of close contact. It now clarifies that close contact for COVID-19 exposure is being within six feet for a total of 15 minutes or more within a 24-hour period. The previous guidance did not specify an overall 24-hour time period.
