The French authorities have reduced the days of isolation from ten to seven for vaccinated people who test positive for COVID-19, as explained by the French Minister of Health, Olivier Verán, in ‘Journal du Dimanche’.
Health and communities agree to reduce the isolation of COVID-19 positives without symptoms to seven days
From this Monday, January 3, therefore, the rule will be that the isolation is seven days for those infected who have the complete vaccine schedule, regardless of the variant. “This isolation could be lifted after five days in case they have a negative antigen test or PCR,” Verán reported.
For unvaccinated people, the isolation will be ten days. It could be reduced to seven in the same terms, that is, with a negative test. In the case of contacts, only those who have not been vaccinated or who do not have the complete schedule will have to quarantine, while the rest will be able to continue leading a normal life with the condition of being tested periodically.
The head of the French Health portfolio has notified this Saturday that the country has become the sixth country in the world to have registered more than 10 million COVID-19 infections since the outbreak of the pandemic.
