Deputy Health Minister Tamar Gabunia said that coronavirus-related isolation and quarantine rules are changing in the country, with these changes to enter into force on 17 January.
Asymptomatic patients or the infected with mild symptoms will go into isolation for eight days, with the isolation to end 24 hours after symptoms disappear.
In the case of a patient with moderate symptoms, isolation will last for ten days.
According to Gabunia, if the vaccinated will communicate with the COVID-infected, they are now allowed not to get quarantined. At least two weeks and a maximum of 90 days must have passed following vaccination.
Non-vaccinated citizens must be self-quarantined for eight days if they contact a COVID-infected citizen.
