Covid-19 patients may be allowed to quarantine at home if they fulfill certain criteria, such as if they have mild or no symptoms, are not high-risk individuals, can be contactable anytime, have a room for their self-isolation and have a suitable caregiver. Here are some tips on how to safely quarantine at home.
If possible, allocate a separate bedroom for you to isolate in. Keep
the door closed. Leave an outside-facing window open and fan
on for ventilation.
Designate one person to be your main caregiver. This person will be the one passing you your meals and disposing the waste you generate. Ask family or friends for help to get your meals and other necessities sorted.
Have your meals in your room alone. Don’t share utensils, plates
and cups with others. Use disposables if possible but be sure to
throw it away separately.
Allocate one bathroom for your own use. If not possible, use the bathroom after everyone else. Thoroughly clean and disinfect it after each use. Keep the windows open for ventilation.
Keep tabs on your symptoms and report your daily status on MySejahtera as directed by health authorities. It is recommended to use a thermometer and oximeter to monitor your temperature and oxygen levels.
Frequently wash your hands with soap and water, and sanitise. Wear a face mask and observe social distancing if you have to open your room door to receiving meals, items or leave out your garbage.
