Her results returned positive the same day.

Stay home as much as you can in Phase 2
As more community cases are on the rise, especially unlinked ones, we should remain vigilant at all times.
We’re now back to Phase 2. Do your best to stay home as much as possible, avoid crowded places, and follow Covid-19 safety rules when you’re out.
