Isolation - when you have been infected with Covid-19

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, or been in direct contact with an infected person, you are required to isolate for at least 10 days to avoid infecting others.

This means:

  • You isolate yourself from others where you live
  • You do not go to work or run errands and you do not leave the property where you are in isolation
  • You have no direct contact with other people, including those who live in the same household

If you cannot isolate yourself at home you should find an alternative residence. If this is not possible, the Ministry of Health can assist in finding other options, such as a hotel.

The Chief Medical Officer will decide when you have recovered. When this has been officially confirmed, you can once again move around freely.
