Who must be quarantined?

People who have had close contact with a coronavirus infected person within the last 14 days must be quarantined. Close contact means that they must have spoken to a person tested positive for the virus for at least 15 minutes. Or the infected person has coughed or sneezed in their direction from a distance of less than 1.5 meters. In both cases, according to information from the Federal Centre for Health Education, there is “a high risk” of being infected. The responsible health authority has ordered quarantine in such cases. For 10 to 14 days, close contact persons of infected persons must observe their state of health. This can be done at home. Further information on quarantine can be found here: “How to act during quarantine?”. The public health department also decides when the quarantine is to end.
