Suppose a person tests positive during their stay. In that case, the infected person must self-isolate for at least ten days in a room in the specific, geographically separated part of the hotel designated for this purpose, without leaving for any reason.

However, hospitalization will be imperative if required, following the assessment of the person’s medical condition by the Ministry of Health personnel for all SARS-CoV-2 infected patients.

Such a person may be admitted to a treatment center, public hospital, or a private clinic depending on their medical condition.

Repatriation is possible but determined by the guest’s insurance and airline regulations.

Positive Antigen test

Any guest who has tested positive via an antigen test will be asked to stay in isolation in a designated room until the Ministry of Health and Wellness carries out a PCR test and the result is obtained. The hotel must provide Quarantine-type room service during the waiting period.

Guests with a negative PCR test result may return to their room and be considered COVID-19 negative.

Positive PCR test

If the PCR test result is positive, the hotel must transfer the client to the hotel area used for COVID-19 positive cases. The Ministry of Health and Wellness, under the responsibility of the RPHS, must be notified and will check whether the guest does not face any medical risk. If such is the case, the person in question must stay in isolation for ten days without their family if they are asymptomatic.

If, after the initial 3-day period, the person tested positive for COVID-19 is symptomatic, we must add three more days to the self-isolation period after the symptoms have disappeared.

Suppose the COVID-19 positive person shows worrying clinical symptoms or has a significant risk of developing a severe case on medical examination. In that case, they must be hospitalized in the public or private healthcare facility of their choice.

Relatives accompanying a positive guest will have to self-isolate for seven days in the separate designated part of the hotel, according to the quarantine protocols. They will have to undergo a PCR test after seven days. If the test result is negative, they will be allowed to move freely around the hotel.

If your PCR test is positive and asymptomatic, you will have to isolate it for ten days within your accommodation. The authorities will contact you. COVID-19 positive cases must self-isolate in a different room from their accompanying persons.

If your antigen test is positive, you must contact the Ministry of Health and Wellness and isolate for ten days within your accommodation.
