The main purpose of isolation is to prevent the spread of infection and the emergence of new cases. Since many may be infected and asymptomatic or infectious and transmit the virus before the onset of symptoms, isolating a
person who has been exposed to COVID-19 or comes from an epidemiologically
unsafe country is important to prevent the disease from spreading.
Based on the Governmental resolution, individuals
in self-isolation must follow the established rules in both isolation on campus and off-campus:
- Upon arrival to Lithuania, register at https://keleiviams.nvsc.lt/en/form with 24 hrs.
not leave the isolation place without the permission of a healthcare professional. If you need to live the isolation place, you have to get permission by filling out this form.
who have returned from abroad, from the airport, seaport, or another land entry point to the place of isolation have to travel in their own (rented)
transport or to request the transportation of relatives or relatives.
Avoid using public transport. If you have to use public transport, wear
protective equipment (face masks, respirators or other PPEs) covering the
nose and mouth and keep a distance of 2 meters from other people
may not accept guests (visitors) for the entire period of isolation
may not visit grocery stores or restaurants and food, medicines and other
necessary items from the moment you enter Lithuania until the 14th day.
must measure body temperature daily and monitor your health for coughs and
case of deterioration in health or symptoms of acute respiratory infection
(sudden onset of at least one of the following symptoms: fever, cough,
difficulty breathing), contact the Coronavirus Hotline by number 1808 and also inform LCC by calling RDonDuty +37064345644
the circumstances change and you need to change the self-isolation
location, apply to the NVSC for permission to leave the isolation location.
If you are self-isolating off-campus, you may share an apartment with a non-exposed person only if another person lives in a separate, well-ventilated room, and sharing of common space is restricted. Co-travelers can share an apartment.
If you are self-isolating on-campus, you may share the self-isolation premises with people who are traveling with you. You have to avoid direct contact, ensure 2 meters, and up to 15 min interaction with others. When food or other items are delivered, you need to wear a medical mask and gloves.
following environmental and personal hygiene requirements must be
1. There is no need to wear a medical mask indoors if you do not feel any symptoms of the disease. Put on a medical mask if you experience symptoms of a respiratory infection such as coughing, sneezing, and you must go to the hospital by ambulance.
2. Wash your hands with soap and water. If it is not possible to wash your hands, alcoholic hand sanitizers (alcoholic hand antiseptics) may be used. Wash your hands before and after cooking, before eating, using the toilet, and when your hands are obviously dirty.
3 . Follow the cough-sneeze etiquette- cover your mouth and nose with a
napkin when coughing or sneezing, and throw the used napkin in the trash.
If you don’t have a napkin, cover your mouth with your elbow, not your palm, while coughing or sneezing.
4 . Ventilate the premises at least 2-3 times a day (open the windows wide
for 10 minutes or ventilate the premises for a few minutes).
5 . Clean frequently used surfaces in the insulated room daily, such as bedside tables, bed frames, and other bedroom furniture. Clean with normal soap or cleaners.
6 . Wash dishes with hot water and regular detergents or use a dishwasher.
