Greetings!

We understand your worries especially with the development of symptoms indicative but not exclusive of COVID-19.

If your husband’s colleaque’s housemate is suspected to be infected with COVID-19, he should undergo screening test at his nearest government hospital. As for your husband’s colleague, since he has fever, he should stay at home until he is fit to work. In addition to that, if his housemate is positive for the infection, he should go for the screening test. As for now, as nothing is clear cut because the housemate is just a suspect and not confirm to be positive, your husband has a low risk. He should take extra precaution such as frequent hand washing, wear mask and practice social distancing.

Your husband 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.
