GACA spokesman explains what it means by institutional quarantine and how it differs from home isolation

The spokesman for the General Authority of Civil Aviation, Ibrahim Al-Rusaa, explained what institutional quarantine means, indicating that it is one of several measures aimed at containing the coronavirus’s spread.

Al-Rusaa said in an interview with the “Saudi” channel that institutional quarantine is a term that refers to a facility that isolates travelers for a specified period of time in a specific location at the expense of the traveler and it is included in the price of the travel ticket, in addition to a valid health insurance policy to cover the risks from the COVID-19 infection.

He said that the institutional quarantine does not apply to citizens, but rather to non-immunized residents arriving from countries that have not been barred from entering and that it will last 7 days, beginning at the hour of arrival at the institutional quarantine site.

He further said that institutional quarantine differs from home isolation, as home isolation takes place in the residence, while institutional quarantine is in a place approved by competent authorities
