I have a lodger who packed her bags and I don't know where

This answer was rated:

I have a lodger who packed her bags and I don't know where she is. I think with relatives. Her contract states she must let me know if she will be away for 7 days or more. I am very worried because we have a deadly virus and I don't know who she will be in contact with. Worried for when she comes back using the kitchen bathroom etc.
JA: Where is your lodger? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: I don't know. I live in Sutton Surrey I know she has an aunt in Wallingtin but I have no idea if she is there
JA: What steps have been taken so far?
Customer: None
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I would like to know what I should do to keep myself safe and keep within the law
