Team, can help to check if a C19 suspect/ close contact undergone a PCR test n result is negative do we still need to quarantine 14 days?
There is no quarantine needed when someone proven to be negative covid-19 infection. However, since we are still our MCO period, the person is to remain at home and unexposed for the time being. Husehold members may still take necessary precautions. These are the guidelines from the Centre of Disease Control (CDC):
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 DoctorOnCall Tanya.
