Recommendations for Confirmed COVID Cases
As of today, isolation is no longer required for those who are a confirmed COVID-19 case.
That is to say, even if you receive a positive result on a COVID test, there is no obligation to isolate.

- Avoid gatherings: it is recommended to avoid gatherings within 5 days from the date of the positive test.
- Protect those who are at risk groups: if you are a confirmed case, it is necessary to avoid close contact with those who are at risk groups, i.e. those aged 60 and older, or those suffering from a chronic diseases.
- Wear a mask: when leaving the house at necessary cases (for example, to receive medical treatment), it is recommended to wear a mask during the entire stay outside the house.
- Risk groups: those who are at a risk group for serious illness, and are a confirmed case, should consult with their HMO doctor as soon as possible, to check the need for receiving medical treatment, and to receive recommendations on additional vaccination dose against COVID.
