Below 5 year old child warded due to close contact, discharged due to negative result. On the Quarantine Order, mother’s name used because she is the guardian and warded together. Will the mother consider quarantined under the law or name is only used on the paper because the alleged PUI is under 5 years old? Mother has not been tested at all.
Thank you for this question. Given that the child has negative results, mother is not needed to be quarantined.
