The Ministry of Health has announced that citizens from quarantine centres will be moved to self-isolation at their respective homes in accordance with resolution no. 25 for the year of 2020, issued by the Minister of Health.
The resolution sets out home self-isolation health regulations that suspected and active coronavirus (COVID-19) patients are obliged to follow.
All those who are ordered to self-isolate are required to sign a self-isolation declaration form and adhere to home self-isolation guidelines for a minimum of two weeks.
These measures include downloading the ‘BeAware’ app and wearing an electronic bracelet to enable expedited public health management. The ministry reiterated that these public health procedures have been established to ensure the safety of patients and the community.
Citizens who have been relocated to home self-isolation include those who have returned to Bahrain from abroad.
The ministry stated that contacts of active cases are already being referred to home self-isolation for two weeks. Patients who have recovered from COVID-19 are obliged to self-isolate at home for a period of 4 weeks, and are tested regularly to ensure they have completely recovered from the virus.
The ministry reiterated the importance of following home self-isolation guidelines. Individuals may book a COVID-19 test via the “BeAware” app after the home self-isolation period has ended, and can proceed to the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Center on the appointment date provided.
