FAQs (Home Recovery Programme)

Please continue to self-isolate, rest and recover. We hope you will have a speedy recovery.

You may contact your MOH Home Recovery Buddy at 6874 4939 if you require a care pack to self-monitor yourself. 

After you have completed your 10-day (if vaccinated) or 14-day (if unvaccinated) programme, you will be discharged.

The day of notification of your COVID-19 Positive Swab Result is counted as Day 1.

If you are on HRP and received an electronic Isolation Order, no discharge memo is needed. 

You are discharged after Day 10 (if vaccinated) or Day 14 (if unvaccinated), if you are feeling well. There is also no need for further PCR tests as vaccinated individuals are extremely unlikely to be infectious by this time. 

After discharge, please minimize social contact for 7 days, to be safe.
