Home Ministry Releases Fresh Home Isolation Guidelines For Mild/Asymptomatic COVID-19 Cases

New Delhi: The Union Health Ministry on Friday extended the isolation period in mild or asymptomatic COVID-19 cases to seven days.

“Home isolation will be over after 7 days pass from testing positive without getting a fever for 3 successive days, after which no re-testing is required and asymptomatic contacts need not take a COVID test,” the Health Ministry notice read.

While patients clinically assigned as mild/asymptomatic are eligible for home isolation, those above 60 years and with comorbidities will only be allowed home isolation after a proper doctor’s evaluation, it added.
