When and how to isolate during the COVID-19 pandemic

Posted on: August 6, 2021, in Blog

The 3rd wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has hit South Africa by storm. To keep yourself and your fellow South Africans safe, it’s best to isolate yourself in the following instances:

  1. You had close contact with someone with COVID-19
  2. You have tested positive for COVID-19
  3. You are waiting for your COVID-19 test results

What is close contact?

Close contact is where you were in contact with someone for more than 15 minutes and closer than 1.5m without wearing a mask.

How long should you isolate?

Mild symptoms / COVID-19 positive: 10 Days after your symptoms started.
COVID-19 positive, but no symptoms: 10 Days after you were tested.
Close contact with someone with COVID-19 symptoms or confirmed COVID-19: 10 Days after contact, if no symptoms and if you have symptoms, 10 days after the symptoms started.

What should you do?

  • Stay home or go to an isolation facility
  • If you have symptoms or tested positive, stay in a separate room from everyone else.
  • Do NOT leave your house or entertain guests until your isolation period is over.
  • Order food and medicine to be delivered and let them leave it at your front door.
