Health Minister admits cutting covid isolation period to 5 days

Georgian Health Minister Zurab Azarashvili does not rule out cutting the covid self-isolation and quarantine period from eight to five days, mentioning the US government’s recent decision over reducing the isolation period from ten to five days.

Effective today, the Georgian government has cut the minimum self-isolation and quarantine period to eight 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.
