COVID-19 patients will no longer receive a separate release document at the end of their isolation period. The initial isolation notice states the mandatory isolation period for all COVID-19 patients, and their isolation will come to an end as stated in the de-isolation criteria in the isolation document.
The isolation period for positive patients will vary depending on the health condition of the person. If the patient has symptoms of fever, shortness of breath or worsening cough, the isolation period will end after 21 days from the date of isolation.
The isolation period for a patient undergoing treatment at a medical facility will be determined as advised and documented by the medical team, and maybe extended to 21 days or more as advised by the medical team.
Persons isolating at home must seek and follow the advice of health professionals if they are experiencing symptoms.
