Tracing  
 
First contact - If I have a positive Covid test and I have been near you, you are a first contact and you would be asked to isolate for 14 days.  You should monitor for symptoms and call your doctor for advice about Covid testing.
 
Contact of a contact - If I have a positive Covid test and I have been near you and you have been near someone else, that someone else is a contact of a contact and does not need to isolate from others.  If then you test positive, that someone else becomes a first contact and must isolate.
