The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) has reduced the mandatory period of isolation and sick leave for confirmed COVID-19 cases from 10 days to 7 days.

MOPH said in a statement issued by it "​Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 on a test done at medical facilities and whose Ehteraz changes to red status will automatically be eligible for 7 days of sick leave. These individuals will be required to have a rapid antigen test at a medical facility authorized by the Ministry on day 7. If the result of this test is negative, the individual’s Ehteraz status will change to green, and they will be able to leave isolation and return to work on day 8."
