In case you or a family member suspect COVID or test positive, following measures may be taken:
Asymptomatic Patients: State Government has initiated a policy of permitting home isolation for asymptomatic or mild patients, indicating they can be treated sufficiently well at home.
If you notice symptoms:
1. Talk to a doctor.
2. Arogya Setu Self-Assessment App may be used for preliminary self-assessment.
Who is tested?
All symptomatic patients from containment and buffer zones with ILI and SARI symptoms are tested immediately.
Those from non-containment and buffer zones are tested based on doctor’s advice.
Testing is done at fever clinics/swab collection centres at the district and taluk levels. Samples are sent to one of the 25 ICMR-approved testing labs in Bengaluru. All fever clinics and labs send all test reports to the BBMP or the State Health Department.
Aarogya Setu is a digital service, primarily a mobile application, developed by the Government of India and is aimed at protecting the citizens during COVID-19. It is designed to augment the initiatives of the Government of India by informing the people of their potential risk of COVID-19 infection and the best practices to be followed to stay healthy, as well as providing them relevant and curated medical advisories, as per MoHFW and ICMR guidelines, pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic.
