On Tuesday, the Ministry of Health published recommendations for hospital visits, developed jointly with the head of the health inspectorate. Recommendations have been developed – as described – in connection with the implementation of the national immunization programme, including the vaccination of a large proportion of people at risk of severe consequences of infection with COVID-19.
The document states that if an adult patient has been vaccinated against COVID-19 or has been infected with SARS-CoV-2, it is advisable to allow vaccinated or unvaccinated people who have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 to visit or have a history of infection. In all cases, visits may only be conducted under the sanitary system.
In the case of vaccinated patients, it is also possible to visit unvaccinated people who did not have a negative test result and did not become infected. In this case, it is necessary to maintain an increased healthy regimen.
The recommendations also specify the conditions for visiting patients who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19, have not had an infection, and do not have a negative test result. In this case, the patient may only be visited under the increased sanitation system by people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19, who have tested negative or who have contracted SARS-CoV-2.
Visiting an unvaccinated patient is not recommended by people who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19, have not been tested negative and have not been infected. Exceptions are special cases that must be determined by the head of the medical entity (for example in the case of closing visits).
Detailed recommendations are available on the Ministry of Health and GIS websites.
