Nobody likes isolating but in certain cases this is the only way to protect those dearest to you and to avoid infecting others

Isolation by Individual Guidance from the Healthcare System

Who must go into isolation

In some cases you can receive an individual guidance to go into isolation by the Healthcare System: from a district physician, from the Head of Public Health Services or from the Ministry of Health's Director General. Such an instruction will be given in the following cases:

  1. Those who have been in close contact with a confirmed COVID case infected with a variant of concern of the virus, or in case when there is real concern they have been infected with such variant during an unusual infection event.
  2. Those who have been in close contact with a confirmed COVID case and are regularly found in a facility with a high-risk population, an unvaccinated population, or a population where the vaccine is known to be less effective.
  3. Those who have been in close contact with a confirmed COVID case on a flight or while on a cruise.

    Please note: An individual guidance to go into isolation due to one of these reasons is binding even if you are vaccinated or recovered.

 

Isolation Duration

If you received an individual guidance from the Healthcare System it is required to go into full isolation of 14 days. Shorter isolation options will be available on an individual basis.

 

Self-report

You are no longer required to report about your isolation to the Ministry of Health.
