Chandigarh, September 7

In revised guidelines, the Punjab Government has allowed home isolation for patients who test positive and have mild symptoms.

As per the revised guidelines issued today by the Director, Health Services, any person getting tested for Covid-19 at the time of giving sample may submit a consent form for home isolation stating that he/she has the facility for home isolation and is asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and

does not have any co-morbidity or has the co-morbid condition under control.

Health staff at walk-in testing corners/testing site will assist in filling these undertakings and keep the filled and signed copies safe for record.

In case the person turns out to be positive for Covid-19, he/she need not come to the hospital and the district Covid-positive tracking teams will contact him/her over the phone and check the health status. The patients will be monitored by the teams during the period of isolation. The teams will immediately shift the patients to appropriate isolation facility if their condition worsens.
