Provide contacts with education, information, and support to understand their risk, what they should do to separate themselves from others who are not exposed, monitor themselves for illness, and the possibility that they could spread the infection to others even if they themselves do not feel ill.

Encourage contacts to stay home and maintain social distance from others (at least 6 feet) until 14 days after last exposure, in case they also become ill.

They should monitor themselves by checking their temperature twice daily and watching for cough or shortness of breath.
