Dubai: Mandatory 10 days quarantine for residents, visitors close contact with Covid patients


- Advertisment -

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) announced a fresh mandatory quarantine rule for residents and visitors who had close contact with a Covid-19 patient. 

According to the new rule, those who had close contact with a Covid-19 patient, and despite testing negative for the virus, are required to undergo a 10-day home quarantine. 

Close contacts are those who have stayed within two metres with a Covid-19 positive case for more than 15 minutes. 

“Contacts who develop any related symptoms during the 10-day quarantine should be tested for Covid-19,” the circular noted. 

Close contacts, added by the DHA, are those who had a certain level of exposure to a Covid-19 case–from two days before the onset of illness and the date a positive test result was received to 14 days after. 

The 10-day home quarantine is applicable for those Covid-19 patients who did not develop any symptoms or are called asymptomatic. It also applies to patients with mild cases of Covid-19 who have fully recovered from their symptoms, without the use of fever-reducing medications.
