According to the South Korean Embassy in Uzbekistan, additional quarantine measures include:

  • Higher temperature standards – only below 37.3 degrees allowed (previously 37.5);
  • Examination of the citizen and people accompanying him in the quarantine zone (if symptoms are present);
  • Examination of all foreign nationals at a temporary stay facility (if no symptoms are present).

After the examination, if the PCR test is positive, the citizen is sent to a clinic or treatment center.

If the result is negative, foreign citizens with short-term stay are sent to a quarantine institution, while those who came to stay langer – to home quarantine, after confirmation of the place of self-isolation.

It was previously reported that the Embassy had introduced a consular verification system to confirm PCR certificates for coronavirus.
