HOT: F0 can leave the house but must wear a mask and keep a distance

Specifically, according to the new Guidelines, people with COVID-19 and their caregivers or people living in the same household as someone with COVID-19 take the following infection control and infection prevention measures:

- People with COVID-19 should limit going out of isolation places. When you have to leave the isolation place, you must wear a mask and keep your distance from others .

- Caregivers or family members living in the same household always wear masks and keep their distance when having contact with people with COVID-19.

- The isolation place is kept well ventilated, limiting the use of difficult-to-clean items (stuffed animals, paper, paperboard, etc.) in this area.

- Wash or disinfect hands frequently. Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as countertops, doorknobs, hand-held devices, toilets, sinks, etc., daily and when dirty.

- Classify and collect infectious waste according to regulations.

Thus, F0 treated at home should limit going out. However, it is still possible to get out of the isolation place but must wear a mask and ensure a distance from people around.

(Compared to the old regulations, the criterion is added that "COVID-19 patients who have been treated by medical examination and treatment facilities but have not yet met the standards of COVID-19 recovery and met the standards of home management will be transferred back to the hospital. home for continued care”)
