Condition of Quarantine and Prerequisites for Accreditation of Hotels & Homes as sites for Home Quarantine

Authority: Quarantine Act Chap 9.23

Purpose:

Pre-certified home quarantine is designed to allow persons the opportunity to quarantine in their place of abode without increasing the risk of transmission of COVID-19 to others, as well as to specify the conditions of quarantine at such location.

Place of abode: This could be a private house, villa, apartment, dormitory, and hotel room.


Requirements:

1.     The place of abode will be inspected by the COVID-19 Task Force to ensure that the property is suitable for quarantine, prior to approval.


2.     The person or persons should be able to totally isolate within the place of abode without having physical contact with others who are not in quarantine. The isolated individual must have access to a separate bedroom and bathroom unit (that is, hand hygiene and toilet facilities) that are not used by others who are not in quarantine.


3.     The place of abode must have facilities for implementation of COVID-19 infection prevention and control (IPC) measures, including hand washing, sanitation and garbage disposal.


4.     The place of abode should have facilities for appropriate storage of food, food preparation, laundry and hygiene provisions for the duration of quarantine. While in quarantine, arrangements can be made to have food supplies and other necessities (for activities of daily living) delivered to the place of abode. No physical interaction will be permitted during such deliveries.


5.     Persons in quarantine must not make physical contact with others who are not in quarantine until cleared from quarantine after 14 days with a negative RT-PRC test result. The individual in quarantine should not entertain any guests/ visitors during the period of quarantine.

7.     Under special circumstances, one is free to depart the island before the completion of the 14 days quarantine period once this can be done safely without unnecessary exposure to others in the general population.


8.     The individual in quarantine should have access to internet, news and entertainment. The individual should be able to communicate with relatives, friends and loved ones outside the quarantine facility. Psychosocial support will be available to persons in quarantine.
