14-day Mandatory Quarantine (starting from the following midnight for 14 consecutive days) 

SNU Self-Quarantine Guideline 

This guideline is provided for those who cooperate in self-quarantine to detect any COVID-19 infection possibilities and blocking its spread to the local community.

 

O Going outside is prohibited.

 

O Stay alone in an isolated space.

 - With the door closed, open the windows as often as possible for ventilation and eat alone.

 - Use your own bathroom (toilet and sink).

 * If you have to use a shared bathroom/toilet, disinfect it with disinfectants before others use it.

 

O When inevitable (such as visits to hospital), report the reason you must go out and its estimated schedule to the local public health service center.

 

O Do not contact or converse with family or roommates.

 - When inevitable, make sure that all parties must wear a mask at all times and do not face each other, maintaining a distance of 2 meters.

 

O Use your own stuffs only (towels, tableware, mobile phone, etc.).

 - Laundry (clothes and blankets, etc.) must be handled individually.

 - Tableware (spoons, chopsticks, forks, etc.) must be separated and wash them before others use them.

 

O Make sure to follow COVID-19 prevention guideline.

 - Wash or sterilize your hands as often and thoroughly as possible.

 - Wear a mask all the time if you have a fever or any respiratory symptoms (coughs, breathing issues, etc.).

 

O Install “self-monitoring app”.

 * If you do not follow the quarantine policy (e.g. unauthorized travels during the quarantine period), you will be required to wear a wrist band that synchronizes with the app; if you refuse to, you will be forced to be isolated in the designated facility. In case you refuse to install the app or do not own a mobile phone, you may be isolated too. (Accommodation fee may be charged.) 

During the self-quarantine period, your local public health center will contact you to check your symptoms. You are required to self-monitor your health status until it exceeds 14 days from the date you contacted the confirmed case, in the following way:

 

O How exactly do we self-monitor ourselves?

 - You should measure your body temperature and monitor if you have developed any suspected symptoms every morning and evening.

 - The local public health center will contact you more than once a day and you should report any symptoms you have.

 

O What kind of symptoms may develop?

- Fever (higher than 37.5), coughs, breathing difficulties, chill, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of auditory/olfactory senses or pneumonia are major symptoms of COVID-19.  

- Other symptoms may include fatigue, loss of appetite, phlegm, digestive symptoms (missing, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.), chaotic feeling, dizziness, runny nose or nasal congestion, glands, chest pains, conjunctivitis, skin symptoms, etc.
