1. For a person who is infected but has no symptoms, the quarantine period is carried out for 10 days after specimen collection and positive confirmation. On the sixth day, the first PCR exit test was carried out to control the condition. If it is declared negative, then with the consideration of the doctor or health worker the patient can complete the quarantine period.

2. For symptomatic patients, quarantine is carried out for 10 days from the onset of symptoms, and three days free of symptoms of fever and respiratory problems. So the total that was done was 13 days. Patients may only leave the quarantine period if they are confirmed negative and symptom-free, and with the consideration of doctors or health workers.

Repeat PCR Schedule for Self-Quarantine Patients

As stated above, there is a schedule of PCR tests in place to help control the patient’s condition. Specifically, the following schedule can be used as a reference.

  • H+0 is the date of confirmation of a positive PCR test, and the start of the quarantine period.
  • H+6 is the first time that the first PCR exit test is carried out to see if the patient’s condition is negative or still positive. Later these results will be considered by health workers or doctors.
  • H+10 becomes the next exit test when the first exit test is still positive. When on d+10 this is still positive, the patient must continue his self-quarantine until the exit test results show negative results and are no longer showing Omicron symptoms.
