The relatives of the persons who returned home from abroad and are self-isolating and the relatives of persons confirmed with COVID-19 who receive treatment at home can leave home and are not liable to criminal punishment if they do it.
Only the person who violated the self-isolation regime that is mandatory for persons who crossed Moldova’s borders to enter the country can be punished. The information was confirmed for IPN by Alina Zbancă, adviser to the minister of home affairs.
The person who returned to the country, either this has symptoms of disease or not, should self-isolate from the other family members if they live in the same home, adviser to the minister of health, labor and social protection Cristina Stratulat has told IPN. The other members of the family are not obliged to self-isolate, but are recommended to maximally avoid contact with the relatives who returned to the country and with third persons.
Under a decision made by the Commission for Exceptional Situations, the persons who enter the Republic of Moldova crossing the state borders will mandatorily fill out the epidemiological form and will sign an own responsibility statement to self-isolate for 14 days in the indicated places. They will be monitored by the family doctor at home. The fine for violating the quarantine regime or for intentionally completing the epidemiological forms incorrectly ranges from 22,500 to 25,000 lei.
According to the Minister of Health, Labor and Social Protection, over 42,000 persons are currently self-isolating at home, being under the supervision of family doctors.
