MoH Basic Information COVID-19 Patients Home-Based Isolation and Care

What is Home Based Isolation?
This is when a patient confirmed to have COVID-19 is mandated to restrict activities and movements outside their home unless when seeking medical care. During the entire period of home-based isolation, the patient should not go to public places like workplaces, school, market, churches, meetings etc. The patient should not also use public transport like taxis, buses and shared boda-boda rides.

What is Home Based Care?
This is when a COVID-19 patient is provided the required care directly in the home by a care giver who may be a family member, a friend or a member of the local community while cooperating with the advice and support from the trained health workers and strictly following the home based isolation standards and other COVID-19 prevention & control measures.
