If you enter MIQ and have COVID-19, or if there is reason to believe you might have COVID-19, then you will need to stay in a quarantine facility for a minimum of 7 days.

People in a quarantine facility are those who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, have COVID-19 symptoms.

Otherwise, you will stay in a managed isolation facility, which is for people who are well but have a risk of having COVID-19. There are many reasons not everyone is able to safely isolate at home and MIQ also helps community members requiring alternative accommodation to safely isolate. Caring for community cases in MIQ is also beneficial for those who may have underlying health issues to be supported by clinical staff.

Both types of facilities are located within hotels, separate from each other.

Quarantine facilities have increased health, safety, and cleaning measures, and additional restrictions on your movements.
