  • 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.

The recovery period can be extended depending on symptoms.

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.

(※) Exception to the rule of staying home during recuperation period
If you have no symptoms or if over 24 hours have passed after symptoms improved, you can go out at the minimum extent such as for getting essentials like food. In that case, you’re required to take thorough infection-preventive measures including wearing a mask.

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.
