Thank you for contacting Just Answer

I am sorry to hear. Unless your wife lives with your niece or daughter, then this is fine to continue as normal. If however you feel there has been prolonged contact whilst infective, then a PCR test and daily lateral flow tests are advised, but continuing out and about again is fine unless any positive tests or symptoms suggestive of COVID.

Not if you do not live with them.
