The duration of isolation for people infected with COVID-19 will be reduced from ten to five days in Quebec, TurnedNews.com has learned. An announcement will be made today by public health. This measure affects the general population, but not healthcare workers who remain in seven days of isolation when in contact with patients.
The five-day isolation will begin from a positive test result or symptom onset.
Other Canadian provinces have already taken this turn, following the United States. This is the case in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and New Brunswick.
A technical briefing intended for the media will take place at 11 a.m. on Tuesday to detail this new measure, in the presence of the senior strategic medical advisor of the General Directorate of Public Health of the Quebec Ministry of Health and Social Services, Marie-France Raynault .
