Self Isolation

Self Isolation

If you exhibit any of the more common COVID-9 symptoms, such as a fever or cough, then self-isolation is the most prudent way of managing your symptoms. If you live alone, consider an isolation period of 7 days; double this to 14 days if you live with other people. During this period, you must:

  • Stay home to the extent possible (remember that you may recover on your own) and avoid public spaces at all costs.
  • If you live with other people, consider creating a separate sick room for yourself, and avoid contact with these people. If possible, use a separate bathroom as well.
  • Keep track of your symptoms, and get in touch with your doctor if emergency warning signs arise.
  • If you do end up needing to go to a hospital, avoid public transport and ride-sharing.
