From the Ministry of Health Saudi Travelers Urged to check quarantine rules abroad before flying


স্বাস্থ্য মন্ত্রনালয় নিশ্চিত করেছে যে সংক্রামিত ব্যক্তিদের সাথে যোগাযোগের পরে টিকা দেওয়া লোকেদের কিংডমে আলাদা করা উচিত নয়

Saudi travelers have been urged to check coronavirus disease (COVID-19) regulations at international destinations ahead of their flights, as quarantine measures may differ from one destination to the next.

Assistant Deputy Minister for Preventive Medicine Dr. Abdullah Asiri on Saturday urged Saudis intending to travel abroad after the May 17 lifting of the flight ban to be fully immunized before their flights, but warned that it might not spare them from spending time in quarantine isolation upon arrival, adding that each country’s regulations differ from one another and “immunized individuals might not be exempt.”

The Saudi Ministry of Health (MoH), though, has said no quarantine is required for immunized individuals in the Kingdom if they have come into contact with a person infected with COVID-19.

A number of queries have been made about quarantine regulations after receiving a second jabs, but the MoH confirmed that 14 days after receiving the second dose, fully immunized individuals do not have to quarantine after contact with a confirmed case, but must continue with general precautions such as wearing a mask and social distancing.

The MoH added that the COVID-19 vaccine works to stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies, decreasing the risk of severe symptoms, and can also reduce transmission to others.

On Saturday, a total of 1,048 new cases of COVID-19 were recorded in the Kingdom, meaning 418,411 people in Saudi Arabia have now contracted the disease.
