Isolation vs returning to work – the guidelines South African workers should know

It is important to note that there is a difference between being fully recovered and being ready to come out of isolation.
 
The following criteria are specified for de-isolation of a person who tests positive for Covid-19:

  • Symptomatic patients with mild disease (not requiring hospitalisation for Covid-19) can be de-isolated 10 days after the onset of their symptoms, provided their fever has resolved and their other symptoms are improving.
  • Hospitalised patients with moderate-severe disease (who require hospitalisation due to Covid-19) can be de-isolated 10 days after achievement of clinical stability (i.e. from when they are not requiring supplemental oxygen and are otherwise clinically stable).
  • Asymptomatic patients can be de-isolated 10 days after their test.
  • Repeat PCR testing is NOT required in order to de-isolate a patient and is not recommended.
