They may have been able to spread the disease to you and others. Being exposed does not mean that you have COVID-19 or will get COVID-19. It does mean you should take steps to protect yourself and those around you.<br></p><p><a href="/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/What-to-Do-If-You-Are-Exposed-to-COVID-19.aspx" target="_blank">Read Exposure Instructions</a><br></p>http://cdph-default/Programs/CID/DCDC/CDPH%20Document%20Library/COVID-19/self-isolation-instructions.pdf, See Self-Quarantine Flyer Image
