Greetings! Thank you for the question. For your information, going to the hospital is does not mean that you are having a close contact with COVID-19 patients. According to the guidelines, close contact is:

  • Health care associated exposure without appropriate PPE (including providing
    direct care for COVID-19 patients, working with health care workers infected with
    COVID-19, visiting patients or staying in the same close environment of a COVID19 patient).
  • Working together in close proximity or sharing the same classroom environment
    with a with COVID-19 patient
  • Traveling together with COVID-19 patient in any kind of conveyance
  • Living in the same household as a COVID-19 patient

You are encouraged to answer the 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.

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.
