    ○ Symptomatic confirmed patients must meet both clinical and testing criteria to be released from quarantine. The clinical criteria is that the patient does not develop a fever without the help of medication and clinical symptoms must improve. The testing criteria requires that patients PCR test performed twice at a 24 hour interval both come back negative in order to be released from quarantine.

    ○ Patients who fail to meet the testing criteria, but meet the clinical criteria may be released from the hospital and put under self-quarantine or quarantine at a separate facility. However, the testing criteria must be met for the quarantine to be lifted.
