However, those without pre-departure testing will be subjected to a facility-based quarantine until the release of the RT-PCR test results taken on the fifth day. With a negative result, the individual will be released for home quarantine until the 10th day.
Meanwhile, those who are unvaccinated shall undergo facility-based quarantine with testing on the seventh day, to be followed by home quarantine up to the 14th day upon the release of a negative test result.
