What is a Household Contact?

Cases in the household contact category can mean people from the same household OR it can mean members of another household having exposure to a case in their household.

For example, if you have your friends over for dinner or a gathering at your house, this would be considered a ‘household contact.’

By the way — and this is really important — you should currently NOT be having friends over for dinner or having a gathering at your house right now.

The key here is that ‘household contact’ includes anyone who was exposed to a case in a household setting, whether they are a member of that household or not.
