    Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine, posted 09 July 2020 10:44

    A person returning from a "red zone" country must undergo self-isolation within 14 days having installed the "DII Vdoma" (Act at Home – ed.) application, but if desired, one can also undergo PCR testing in any laboratory accredited by the Center for Public Health. In the case one tests negative, self-isolation ceases. The Minister of Health of Ukraine Maksym Stepanov stated this at a daily briefing.

    "The results of testing for COVID-19 by using PCR method are entered into the electronic system of the Center for Public Health of Ukraine by the laboratory that directly performed the research. Also, after the testing, the result is automatically sent to the application "DII Vdoma". After that, the person receives a message from the application about the possibility of terminating self-isolation," Maksym Stepanov explained.

    All laboratories accredited by the Center for Public Health are listed on the Center's website. We also draw your attention to the fact that the person who takes the PCR test must first fill in a consent for data processing. It is required to indicate in the form the fact of crossing the border if it took place during the last 14 days, and the exact date of arrival in Ukraine.

    In addition, the filled form should contain the phone number that was used to install the application "DII Vdoma". Otherwise, confusion and late notification of termination of self-isolation may occur.
