To Those Who Diagnosed with COVID-19

According to the government policy into focusing on report of certain cases, in Tochigi Prefecture, we hand out the leaflet titled “To Those Who Diagnosed with COVID-19” when you test positive at a healthcare facility.

The leaflet can be used for showing you have COVID, so keep it with you.

For people who register your COVID positive result at Tochigi Health Observation Follow-up Center after taking an antigen test, etc. by yourselves, we send you an email instead of the leaflet.

※If you tested negative, discard the leaflet you received.

 

Process from diagnosis to treatment

Your jurisdictional Health Center is determined by your residence.

When to end isolation

If you are not designated to be reported, apply the following criteria for ending isolation to yourselves.

If you have symptoms of COVID (※1)

  • When 7 days have passed after symptom onset (Day 0) and 24 hours passed after symptoms improved, your isolation restriction is to be lifted on the next day (Day 8).
    (※) As there are still risks of passing COVID on to others through 10 days, take full measures as follows to prevent spreading of infection.
    -take your temperature and check your physical condition
    -avoid contact with people at higher risk from COVID
    -stay away from facilities where there are many those people
    -avoid places at high risk of infection and dining with others
    -continue to wear a mask

  • For those who are still hospitalized (※2) as of Day 8 (the 8th day after Day 0), your isolation restriction is to be lifted on Day 11 only if 72 hours passed after symptoms improved.

  (※1) Excluding cases treated using a ventilator
  (※2) Including those who live in nursing homes

If you don’t have symptoms of COVID (Asymptomatic carriers)

  • When 7 days have passed after the test sample was collected for the positive test (Day 0), your isolation restriction is to be lifted on the next day (Day 8).
  • When you confirm negative with a test kit approved by the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law on Day 5, the restriction is to be lifted on Day 6.
    (※) As there are still risks of passing COVID on to others through 7 days, take full measures as follows to prevent spreading of infection.
    -take your temperature and check your physical condition
    -avoid contact with people at higher risk from COVID
    -stay away from facilities where there are many those people
    -avoid places at high risk of infection and dining with others
    -continue to wear a mask

 

There is a public support system to cover hospitalization or inpatient recovery costs after a positive diagnosis of COVID-19.

There may be a partial personal responsibility for costs, so if you undergo inpatient recovery or hospitalization, make sure to confirm this ahead of time.

Important Guidelines for Recovery

1 Please do not go outside during your recovery period.

During outpatient recovery, you may not go outside. Even inside your home, please keep your movements to a minimum.

(※) Except for when you get food or other essentials at the minimum length and frequency. Make sure you never fail to take infection-preventive measures such as wearing a mask and avoid public transport. This exception is applicable only if you haven’t had any symptoms or 24 hours have passed after your symptoms improved.

2 Do not interact with those outside your household.

  • Do not allow visitors inside your home. If it is unavoidable, use an intercom or talk through the door, and do not make direct contact.
  • Those sharing a residence with an infected person are automatically considered close contacts. There is a waiting period of 5 days. (The first day the infected person presented symptoms, or the first day in which counter-infection measures were put in place, will be considered Day 0, depending which one is later.) Do not leave the house unnecessarily, and avoid contact with persons outside the household as much as possible.
  • If anyone in the same household develops a fever or other symptoms, please go for a test and diagnosis. Or you can choose to get tested at home and sign up for Positive Result Registration Form.

3 Check your health condition every day.

COVID can cause you acute health deterioration. Just be sure to keep checking your physical condition (cough, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat, headache, feeling tired, etc.) and take your temperature every day.
If you are a person designated to be reported, your local Health Center helps monitor your symptoms. Just wait for their contact by phone or SMS.

  • If a large-scale natural disaster such as typhoon is forecast, you can evacuate to a lodging facility in advance. If you need to evacuate from home, contact your local health center well in advance.

We would like to ask you to be careful with your health condition in the following 4 weeks and keep taking measures to prevent infection.

Return to work or school

You can get back to your work or school after completion of recuperation period. There are no restrictions on daily life. Regarding when you return again to work, consult with your employer.For COVID-19 infection, it is said that PCR tests will continue to be positive for about a month (20 days on average) after the infection is found. You don’t need to undergo a PCR test in order to obtain a negative test result (for proving your recovery from COVID) when going back to work or school.

Certificate of Recuperation Completion

If you are a person who was not reported, Certificate of Recovery is not issued (neither in printed form).
When you were reported, you can get a digital version of the Certificate at My HER-SYS.

When you make a claim to your life insurance company, other documents can be substituted for Certificate of Recovery in order to prove your COVID infection. Because necessary documents differ among companies, ask directly your insurance provider about it.

Examples for alternatives that may be available

  • Certificate by My HER-SYS
  • Document to show the positive result of PCR or antigen testing
  • Prescription or administration instruction of COVID medication
  • Acceptance notice (by SMS, etc.) from health observation follow-up center organized by local government
