What is isolation?
A person who is infected is isolated to prevent the further spread of the disease.
You spend time in home isolation if you have been confirmed as COVID-19 positive by the RT-PCR test, but at the same time, you do not suffer from severe symptoms of this disease that would require your hospitalization. However, monitor your symptoms and if they worsen, contact your GP, and follow their instructions.
How long does isolation last?
In general, isolation lasts a minimum of ten days after your positive RT-PCR test. After the required minimum, your GP may release you from isolation. However, you must be without the symptoms in the past three days.
Protect your loved ones, and please follow the rules, as you are contagious.
- Limit all visits.
- At home should stay only the members of the household who are taking care of the infected person.
- Separate yourself from other members of the household.
- To protect others, use a face mask when you are in the same room as them.
- Isolate yourself in a well-ventilated area where you can open a window.
- If you do not have a separate toilet, disinfect the area after every use by an infected person.
- Use your separate towels, kitchen utensils, drinking glasses, bed linen, and other household items commonly shared in the house.
- If you need, any shopping such as pharmacy or grocery, ask your friends, neighbors, or social workers for help.
- Avoid direct contact with people. For example, have your purchases delivered to your door instead of to your hands.
- Wash and disinfect hands before and after any interaction with other people.
- Follow your doctor's instructions and call him if your conditions get worse.
