HPEPH clarifies that a low-risk contact means individuals are not required to isolate unless they develop symptoms (even mild ones) or if they test positive for COVID-19.

They also advise those who attended the fair on both or either of those days to monitor for symptoms diligently.

If symptoms develop, individuals are to isolate and seek testing.
