Test and release procedure

COVID-19 positive cases have the option to end quarantine earlier if their supervised RTK-Ag test result on Day-4 is negative. This test can be done at the nearest health facility or virtually.

This RTK-Ag test can also be done on Day-5 or 6 for the purpose of early release from quarantine.

If tested positive, they must continue to quarantine until Day-7. No other test needed after completion of quarantine.
