New rules for positive or contact case and quarantine on the French side

MARIGOT: Since January 3, 2022, if you are a contact case or positive for Covid-19, the rules of isolation are changing. What changes for you and the persons you have been in contact with if you have or have not had your booster vaccination.

1/ YOU ARE POSITIVE TO THE VIRUS AND HAVE A COMPLETE VACCINATION SCHEDULE

You have received your booster dose, and you are positive to the virus – Delta or Omicron:

→ You must isolate yourself 7 days after the date of onset of symptoms or your antigenic or PCR test.

→ You can break this quarantine if after 5 days, under two conditions:

1) after performing an antigenic or PCR test, it is negative. (If you are still positive after the test, the isolation is maintained at 7 days).

2) if you have no more signs of infection since 48 hours, you can resume a normal life, go out, work…

2/ YOU ARE POSITIVE BUT YOUR VACCINATION IS INCOMPLETE

You have not yet been vaccinated against Covid-19 or you are waiting for your booster dose?

→ You isolate yourself for 10 days after the date of the beginning of the signs or the date of your screening if it is positive

→ You can break isolation under two conditions:

– → if after 7 days, after performing an antigen or PCR test, it is negative.

→ if you have no more signs of infection for 48 hours, you can resume a normal life, go out, work…

3/ YOU ARE A CONTACT CASE AND HAVE A COMPLETE VACCINATION SCHEDULE

→ It is no longer necessary to isolate yourself. You maintain of course the barrier gestures, the ventilation of your home, the wearing of the mask inside and outside. For those who work, telecommuting is possible

→ You do an antigenic screening test or PCR immediately and then self-tests performed at 2 and 4 days after your last contact with the Covid-19 positive person. If you are positive, you retest antigenically or PCR and isolation becomes mandatory for 10 days.

Note: self-tests for vaccinated persons and contact cases (as well as children under 12 years old) are covered by the Health Insurance and are free of charge in pharmacies upon presentation of the negative result of the immediate test as well as a statement on your honor justifying your contact case status.

4/ YOU ARE A CASE CONTACT AND YOUR PATTERN IS NOT COMPLETE

→ You isolate yourself for 7 days

→ On the 7th day, you undergo a screening test (PCR or antigenic) to check that you are no longer positive. Isolation can then be stopped.

If you are positive, isolation is maintained.
