The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) has lifted its mandatory coronavirus quarantine regulations.


Starting today, reporting of mild or asymptomatic infections, as well as the current mandatory five-day quarantine for infected individuals has been phased out. Under the new policy, people who obtain a positive rapid test result will no longer have to confirm their results via a tele-medicine appointment, and instead, will simply be asked to monitor their health for a period of 10 days. People with symptomatic infections will be encouraged, but not required, to stay at home until their symptoms ease or to wear a mask at all times if they do go out.

The government has also stopped issuing digital coronavirus certificates and quarantine notifications and people can now use a photograph of their positive rapid test result as documentation for taking sick leave. However, the Ministry of Education is still advising students and teachers against attending classes in-person for five days after testing positive for the coronavirus.
