New rules for coronavirus tests

Since 17 November 2020 a number of new COVID-19 rules are applicable in Russia.

The most important new rules are:

1. The COVID-19 laboratory test must be no older than  48 hours now (there was no time limit set previously). 

2. Discharge from COVID-sick leave requires 1 negative test now, instead of 2 previously.

3. Self-isolation of 14 days is mandatory for the following persons:

– COVID-19 positive tested;

– having COVID-19 symptoms (suspected cases);

– having had close contact with persons who have tested positive for COVID-19. In case of absence of COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days, a COVID-19 test is not necessary.

4. The territorial bodies of Rospotrebnadzor are obliged to:

– notify persons who have tested positive for COVID-19 and all their contacts of mandatory 14 days isolation;

– notify medical organizations about the need to establish medical surveillance of the above persons.

The new rules will remain in force until 1 January 2022.
