Georgian government cuts the minimum self-isolation and quarantine period from Monday.
Below are the main takeaways of Deputy Health Minister Tamar Gabunia’s Friday press point:
- People with COVID-19 should isolate/quarantine for 8 days if they are mild, asymptomatic and their symptoms are resolving (within 24 hours); followed by strict mask use for 5 days;
- Patients with moderate or severe cases should isolate/quarantine for at least 10 days with resolving symptoms (within 24 hours); followed by strict mask use for 5 days;
- As to those exposed to COVID-19, double-jabbed and boosted people do not need to quarantine in the 90 days since their second or third dose, while COVID-19 recovered patients will be required to isolate for 10 days, followed by strict mask use.
- Unvaccinated people should stay in quarantine for 8 days after exposure and wear a mask for 9-12 days.
