When should I quarantine or isolate?
Quarantine or isolation may be indicated in the following situations:
- If you have had common contact with a patient diagnosed with COVID-19, and this measure is determined by the Health Authority (case-by-case assessment).
- If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and the attending physician assesses you to determine that your medical condition does not require hospitalization;
These measures are indicated after a specific risk assessment, to protect you, protect your family and keep the community safe.
If you are recommended to quarantine, it is important that you follow this indication until the end of the period indicated, even if you do not have any symptoms. The same applies if isolation is recommended. The length of time you must remain in quarantine or isolation will be communicated to you by the Health Authority or accompanying clinician.
