The Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Wednesday said that the state government will allow home isolation for COVID – positive asymptomatic patients, adding that the decision has been delayed due to the Opposition’s criticism about the move.
“Several states in the country have allowed home isolation for asymptomatic COVID-19 patients. We have also decided to do the same. Any person willing to be home quarantined, should seek permission from the local Deputy Collector’s office,” Sawant told reporters after chairing the state cabinet in Porvorim.
Dr. Sawant further said that those who had dwellings which facilitated isolation or families who had collectively tested positive would be given permission for home quarantine.
