Quarantine applies also to vaccinated people, Health Ministry reminds

During the state of emergency (until January 12, 2022), quarantine will also have to be observed by Covid-19 contact persons who have a Covid-19 certificate and do not have symptoms, Health Ministry representative Jana Feldmane said at a press briefing October 21. 

So far in cases where a contact person with an interoperable certificate of vaccination or recovery and had no symptoms, was obliged to perform a Covid test seven days after contact, but did not have to observe quarantine.  In accordance with the new requirements during the emergency period determined by January 12, 2022, quarantine after contact with Covid-19 infected will also apply to persons with a vaccination or recovery certificate.

According to the information available on the website of the Disease Prevention and Control Center (SPKC), the home quarantine lasts for 14 days and must be observed by a contact person after the last contact with the person who has a laboratory-confirmed positive test result.
