The new rules will affect citizens who have been diagnosed with a coronavirus infection since February 6. Those who fell ill will remain in self-isolation until February 6, as before, for 14 days.

The Moscow Operational Headquarters for Control and Monitoring of the Coronavirus Situation reports that the period of treatment of patients with COVID-19 at home is reduced to seven days in the absence of symptoms in accordance with the decision of the Chief State Sanitary Doctor of the Russian Federation and the order of the Russian Ministry of Health.

The new rules will apply only to those patients whose diagnosis will be established on February 6 and later. They will be able to end the self-isolation regime after seven days from the date of confirmation of COVID-19 in the absence of symptoms of the disease. Citizens who fell ill before February 6 must observe the isolation regime, as before, for 14 days.

If a patient was confirmed COVID-19 earlier than February 6 and a sick leave was opened, then before the end of the 14-day period of treatment, a polyclinic doctor will contact him, conduct an audio consultation and, based on its results, remotely close or extend the sick leave.

If a citizen has been diagnosed with a coronavirus infection and a sick leave has been opened since February 6, the doctor will contact him before the end of the seven-day treatment period and conduct an audio consultation. Based on its results, the sick leave will be closed or extended if there are symptoms of the disease.

A personal visit to the clinic to close the sick leave is not required – it will be displayed in the electronic medical record and will be automatically sent to the employer. Paper sick leaves are not issued from January 1, 2022 in accordance with federal law.
