ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad district administration has issued new standard operating procedures (SOPs) for citizens returning from abroad.
According to the new SOPs, all passengers will be taken directly to a private or government-run quarantine centre depending on their choice. They will stay at the centre for two to three days while they are tested for the virus and their results are received.
If they test negative, they will be allowed to go home, otherwise they will remain at the quarantine centre. If their condition worsens, they will be taken to either a private or a government hospital depending on their choice.
Passengers who choose to stay at a private quarantine centre and get treated at a private hospital will have to pay their own expenses.
