Covid 19 exposure enquiry

Answered by: Dr Ramzdhan

Salam Dr, I just found out that one of the passengers in my flight home from Dubai-KL on the 19th March tested positive for Covid-19. I’m not sure if I should get myself/family members tested as well, as it has been more than 14 days since last potential exposure. I have been self-isolating to the best of my ability at home in a separate room and have no symptoms so far. May i know your opinion on what is best to do in this situation? Thank you :blush:

Greetings! Thank you for the question. For your information, because you are travelling with someone who is a confirmed case of COVID-19, it means that you are a close contact.

According to our MOH protocol, self-quarantine is indicated for the following scenarios:

  • Close contact with positive cases, with or without symptoms.

  • Symptomatic with travel history to high risk countries such as China, Japan, Korea, Italy and Iran.

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.

You may visit the hospitals in this list for a COVID-19 screening test. (Designated Hospital for COVID-19)

We also provide home testing services, accessible through this link: COVID-19 Screening At Home.
