【Ending isolation and home quarantine series – 2 🏡🛡️】
If one of your household members is tested positive# for COVID-19, you are a household close contact of a person infected with COVID-19. You are required to undergo quarantine. If conditions are suitable, you may be quarantined at home.
If you have already received at least two doses of COVID-19 vaccine, you may conduct Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) on Day 6* and Day 7*. If the test results on these two successive days are negative, you may leave your home on Day 7 for your daily activities.
The quarantine period is 14 days if you have not received at least two doses of COVID-19 vaccine. In this case, you should undergo RATs on Day 1*, Day 3*, Day 7* and Day 14* (Day 1 and Day 7 for close contacts aged less than three). If you obtain negative test results on these days, your quarantine ends.
If you obtain a positive result in any of the tests, you then become an infected person and you should report to the Centre for Health Protection.
# By nucleic acid test or RAT
* Currently, the day following testing or collection of positive sample from the infected household is counted as Day 1 of home quarantine. If there is no such testing or collection record, the day on receiving the positive result of the infected household is counted as Day 1. If more household member(s) are tested positive, the day following testing or collection of sample from the last person tested positive at home should be counted as Day 1.
