    I THINK I HAVE COVID-19, WHAT NOW?

    If you suspect you have been infected or were in direct contact with someone who has been confirmed positive:

    “Keep careful watch of these common symptoms associated with Omicron (cough, fatigue or tiredness, congestion, and runny nose). Unlike in previous variants, the loss of taste and smell seems to be uncommon.”

    Here are some practical guidelines to follow if you suspect you have contracted COVID-19, but have not been tested: 

    • The golden rule is to stay home, quarantine for 10-days, and limit contact with others.
    • If no symptoms present during this period, quarantine can be broken once the 10-days have been completed. However, if any symptoms present during this period, it is important to manage them and to know when a visit to the doctor is necessary.
    • If worrisome symptoms present, specifically relating to respiratory complications, please seek immediate medical attention or call an ambulance.
    • For those seeking medical intervention to address mild symptoms, the individual can telephonically contact the healthcare facility for a virtual consultation. Alternatively, the doctor can request an in-person assessment.

    Western Cape Premier Alan Winde and representatives from the province’s health department are expected to give a press briefing on Tuesday, 7 June. The briefing will show data that the COVID-19 restrictions in SA are not necessary anymore.
