/ 05:49 PM January 12, 2022

BACOLOD CITY — This city and Negros Occidental now allow home quarantine for fully vaccinated individuals with COVID-19.

Em Ang, Bacolod Emergency Operations Center executive director, said fully vaccinated residents with COVID-19 would be allowed home quarantine if they are asymptomatic and live in a house where they could stay in a separate bedroom with a bathroom.

The Negros Occidental provincial government also allows home quarantine for fully vaccinated individuals hit with COVID-19, Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz said.


A Department of Health advisory allows a seven-day quarantine, but the Bacolod EOC, in consultation with infectious disease specialists, has set it for ten days.


Fully vaccinated health workers with COVID-19 could return to work in five days, Ang said.

Those with COVID-19, who do not have a separate room to isolate themselves, would be brought to a city quarantine facility, Ang said.

“COVID-19 unvaccinated residents will have to remain in quarantine for 14 days,” she said.
