Restrictions on movement in shelters

Expand all questions

People in shelters who are infected with the coronavirus and those who have been in close contact with them may not leave the place where they are staying and must remain in isolation.

The restriction on movement applies to them from the time the disease is diagnosed until they are recovered.

They are allowed to leave the shelter only at the order of a health care worker or a police officer, or in an emergency that threatens their life or health. They may be taken to a hospital for treatment if necessary.

As other people will still need to use the shelter, those who are infected and those that have been in close contact with them must be separated from the others.

The same rules apply to the other people staying in a shelter as to people who are living with someone that has shown symptoms of infection but who are not in direct contact with them.

The police monitor that the restrictions on movement are adhered to in shelters.
