People under quarantine must not leave their designated location for any reason.

People who finish the 14-day mandatory quarantine in Vietnam need to undergo another 14 days under medical supervision and testing to ensure safety amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, according to the new protocols.

Those who complete the compulsory quarantine are required to be tested for the virus on the 7th day after ending the quarantine period. If tested negative for SARS-CoV-2, they are still under medical supervision. If being tested positive, they will be quarantined at the hospital.

It means that Vietnam demands no further quarantine period than the current requirement of 14 days but people who finish the quarantine would be strictly supervised for 14 days by health workers.

The content was released on May 5 by the National Standing Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control.

Home quarantine after the compulsory period is allowed but people need to notify authorities at their places and report daily their medical conditions to health workers.

During the self-quarantine, leaving the place is not encouraged but allowed if the person inform local police and health workers as well as follow the 5K-message (in Vietnamese) namely masking – distance – no gathering – disinfection – and medical declaration.
