COVID-19 Outbreak: Your Guide To Home Quarantine

While you’re doing everything right, like practising social distancing and washing hands, you may still find yourself in a situation where you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 virus.

So to prevent community transmission, you are required to be home quarantined.

Here’s how to do it:

> Allocate yourself a separate room with proper ventilation 

> Maintain distance from family members

> Use a separate washroom, if using the same, ensure to clean the taps, doorknobs with soap and water 

> Minimise visitors to the house

> Frequently wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer


> Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands

> Face masks and gloves used by a quarantined person should be properly discarded without reuse

Also, we recommend all our readers to refrain from unnecessary travel! Travel only when necessary, till the time things get better.
