If a conscript gets infected, they will be in isolation until the end of the treatment.

Conscripts and active servicemen who might have been exposed to people infected with the coronavirus will be excluded from active training activities for two weeks. At that time, food will be provided for them from the canteen with a thermos, and left behind the door. Empty thermoses will be disinfected. It is possible to contact the conscripts and servicemen who have been excluded from active training or who do not have the permission to leave the base by their mobile phones. They can receive packages, if the package is sent by post, or left for them at the base entrance.
