The Federal Health Council (Cofesa) determined that the Close contacts of confirmed coronavirus cases that are asymptomatic and have a full vaccination schedule will not have to do isolation. This was specified by the Minister of Health, Carla Vizzotti, who specified that Each province will make the decision on whether to follow this new recommendation.
“People with two doses and a booster do not need to have isolation; people with a primary scheme (one or two) and who had Covid can make isolation more flexible and take a test between the third and fifth day; the unvaccinated have to do isolation” , detailed in dialogue with radio Con Vos.
The official stated that It will be each jurisdiction that determines the implementation of these new measures, taken based on the impact on the health system, in essential services, Aerolineas Argentinas, fire, police, security, energy and in the entire private sector.
“We are placing great value on vaccination, especially the reinforcement in the context of minimizing risk and making isolations more flexible,” said the Minister of Health.
Thus, Each province must implement the new provisions agreed upon by all the country’s Health Ministers.
“The biggest source of infection is not at work where jobs are done, but in social places. That is why all this is in the context of minimizing risks, following strict protocols and even if we have full doses, minimize social activities, “said Vizzotti.
In addition, he argued that once the new recommendations are published, jurisdictions will be able to implement them immediately, according to the health situation.
“This is a global umbrella, we talked about it after yesterday’s meeting with experts and now with COFESA, with a recommendation that reflects this paradigm shift from the national level, but each province has different progress in vaccination, different epidemiological situation, different testing capacity and different, above all, activities that are considered a priority, “I specify.
While remarking that, the private world of work may also incorporate these general regulations, in accordance with the jurisdictions, as of their adaptation.
