Answered by: Dr Sashini Seeni
Does a covid19 patient with no symptoms eligible to ask for Medical Leave from doctor? Instead of being told to quarantine but STILL work-from-home, can the patient get a medical leave from doctor so that she can take more rest to prevent any unforeseen health issue? The patient has no symptoms but both RTK and PCR result are positive.
Hello and thank you for your question.
Based on your question, I understand your concerns. I will try to help you.
From your description, the person has both RTK and PCR positive, it indicates high possibility of Covid positive patient. I would suggest to do self monitoring for presence of any Covid symptoms as below and ask advice for a doctor, possibly go to nearest CAC as possible for further details about medical leave and home quarantine guidelines.
Most common symptoms:
-loss of taste or smell
Less common symptoms:
-aches and pains
-rash on skin, or discolouration of fingers or toes
-red or irritated eyes
-difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
-loss of speech or mobility, or confusion
