    relative seclusion

    Imprisoned without a Trial:
    Mary Mallon, now known as Typhoid Mary...Mary was the "first carrier" of typhoid fever...She was forced to live in relative seclusion upon North Brother Island off New York...

    What does "relative seclusion" mean?

    Re: relative seclusion

    It means, not in prison, but kept from interacting with other people.
