Hello, thank you for your enquiry.

For your information, according to the Covid-19 protocol, people who are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine after contact with someone who had Covid-19 unless they have symptoms. However, fully vaccinated people should get tested within 3-5 days after their exposure. Even if there are no symptoms, please do wear a mask indoors or in public for 14 days following exposure or until the latest result is negative.

Although you and the rest of your family members are fully vaccinated, please understand that the acquired immunity is unable to 100% protect you from Covid-19. Following SOPs are still the fundamental measures, please wear mask, always sanitize your hands and maintain social distancing.

Further information, you may contact the relevant department CPRC via 0388810200/+60178429454 and you may also contact us for online consultations.

Thank you, we hope our answer has been helpful.
