The Public Health Commission, in which the autonomous communities and the Ministry of Health are represented, has agreed “unanimously” to reduce the quarantine of all positives for Covid-19 to seven days, compared to the ten currently set.
As health sources have reported to Europa Press, likewise those not vaccinated who have been close contacts of a positive will also see their isolation period reduced to seven days, compared to ten so far. The rule already established that those vaccinated who were in close contact did not have to quarantine.
Several communities had expressed their intention that the isolation of the positives by Covid-19 be reduced to five days. The president of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano García-Page, had even asked that the isolation be shortened to three days.
The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has said that a decision would be made at the Interterritorial Health Council this afternoon.
However, as published by Cadena Ser, the Alerts Report, a body under the Ministry of Health, advised against reducing them, as other countries such as the United States or the United Kingdom have done.
