The positive COVID-19 test result of a returned overseas traveller is being re-examined after they presented at the Ballarat Base Hospital last night. . . .
“Ballarat Health Services has planned and prepared for situations like this, and this has not impacted our day-to-day operations across the Base Hospital or for those who have emergency needs,” the spokesperson said.
They urged Ballarat residents to continue checking the list of exposure sites, to get tested if they have even the mildest symptoms, and to isolate until they receive their results. . . . “
It says: TO GET TESTED IF THEY HAVE EVEN THE MILDEST SYMPTOMS AND TO ISOLATE UNTIL THEY RECEIVE THEIR RESULTS!
Well, this concerns “the positive COVID-19 test result of a returned overseas traveller”!
MY QUESTION IS: FOR HOW LONG SHOULD QUARANTINE OF A RETURNED OVERSEAS TRAVELLER LAST?
IS IT NOT POSSIBLE THAT THE QUANRANTINE SHOULD LAST LONGER THAN 14 DAYS?
And apart from that there definitely should be better quarantine facilities than the ones a hotel can provide!
