- Although we hope that you and your family will not need to ever undergo testing for Covid-19, it is important to keep track of all your social interactions, including those of your close family members. Keeping a list of people you have been in contact with in the last days and their contact details would help the contact tracing teams in their efforts, should there ever be a need to do this. Again, we hope no one will need to self-isolate but there is merit in keeping track of all your social interactions on an ongoing basis. Read more here
