When to go home quarantine, when a person has become a contact person for a Covid-19 patient, and when only in quarantine when the infection is discovered by himself, the portal “Delphi” explains.
In the event that a teacher with an interoperable Covid-19 certificate becomes the contact person for a Covid-19 patient, he or she does not have to go to a home quarantine. In this case, the teacher should take the Covid-19 test within a week and only follow the quarantine at home if the test is positive.
On the other hand, if a positive teacher of Covid-19 does not have an interoperable certificate, he or she must go home after quarantine and the learning process must be stopped on the spot.
According to Ilze Arāja, a representative of the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (SPKC), the procedure described below applies to everyone, not just those involved in the learning process.
