Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

 

If everyone in our household has COVID-19, can we quarantine together? Do we still need to wear masks around each other?

 

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

 

If everyone in your household has COVID-19, it's crucial for each person to self-isolate or maintain a distance of about 5 meters apart until everyone becomes COVID-free. During this time, drug treatment is essential, and wearing face masks, whether at home or in a healthcare facility, is strongly recommended. This helps prevent the spread of the virus and protects everyone's health. 

 

Thanks
