    Hi Anukul

    New covid-19 cases have been found on a few occaasions recently amoung people in 14 day quarantine. Do the people who are residing in the same quarantine accommodation if the infected have to restart their 14 days quarantine period from day one because of theirclose vicinity to the infected?
