Many people in the US and around the world know what it’s like to have to suddenly quarantine because of a positive case of COVID or a close contact exposure. As cases continue to surge in certain parts of the world, families again are being forced to quarantine. In places like Cambodia, a positive test result or close contact with a known COVID case requires individuals to immediately shelter in place.
