The timing of quarantine and isolation will depend on the course of the disease and vaccination, said Deputy Minister of Health Tamar Gabunia.

At the beginning of the week, epidemiologists announced a change in the terms of quarantine and isolation, which currently amount to 12 days for everyone.

"These changes will come into force on Monday, and now we are clarifying them," Gabunia said at a briefing.

According to the deputy minister, according to the new rules, the period of self-isolation with coronavirus will depend on the course of the disease.

With an asymptomatic or mild course of the disease, the period of self-isolation will be 8 days, provided there are no symptoms during the last day and wearing a mask for five days after the expiration of the period of self-isolation.

With a severe and moderate form of the disease, the period of self-isolation will be at least 10 days, while the dynamics of a sharp improvement over the last 24 hours should be observed. At the same time, at the end of the period of self-isolation, those who have been ill must wear masks for five days.

As for those in contact with the coronavirus, the quarantine period, according to the Deputy head of the Ministry of Health of Georgia, will depend on whether the person in contact is vaccinated or not.

Vaccinated people, including those with a booster dose, will not be quarantined for a period of 2 weeks to 90 days after vaccination. Also, quarantine will not be needed for those who had suffered coronavirus 60 days before. However, such persons will have to wear masks constantly for 10 days.

As for the unvaccinated, according to Gabunia, they will be required to stay in quarantine for 8 days and wear a mask for 9-12 days when they meet the patient.

Both doses of the coronavirus vaccine in Georgia, as of January 14, were made by 1,186,833 people, which is 41.3% of the adult population. A total of 2,596,549 doses of vaccinations were made. Of these, 1,305,434 people were vaccinated with at least one dose, which is 45.4% of the adult population.
