My brother’s classmate is +ve covid-19 and my brother is told to do swab test because he is in the same class as the +ve patient. But his turn for test not yet come.
So me as his sister who live in the same house, do i need to take the test? And can I go to work (P/S: I work as kindergarten teacher) as usual?
Thank you for your time in answering this question
Thank you for your question. I understand that you are worried about contracting the COVID-19. I would encourage you to answer this quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate your health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories. Further instructions will be given at the end of the quiz. Please act accordingly.
Since you had direct contact with a confirmed case, you may also directly visit the hospitals in this list for a COVID-19 screening test. (Designated Hospital for COVID-19). Other than that, do practice good hand hygien and wear your face mask in public.
You may consult a MOH doctor by clicking Ask Doctor at the Ministry of Health website (COVID-19 Portal) to ask any health issues related to COVID-19 starting from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.
After 5.00 pm till 12.00 am, please direct your enquiries to our DoctorOnCall website at this link https://www.doctoroncall.com.my/tanya/.
