What is the difference between a casual contact and a close contact?

According to Queensland Health advice, whether someone should get tested and isolate depends on their contact level. The contact level of specific locations is classified on the contact tracing list.

  • ‘Close Contacts’ must immediately quarantine for 14 days and complete the contact tracing self-assessment
  • ‘Casual Contacts’ must get tested immediately and quarantine until you get a negative result
  • ‘Low Risk Contacts’ do not need to get tested, but monitor for symptoms.

If you or a staff member has just been in the general area of listed contact tracing locations but have not visited any of the listed locations, they do not need to self-isolate or get tested.

However, they should watch for COVID-19 symptoms and if they feel unwell, to get tested and self-isolate while waiting for results.
