Quarantine Reduced to One Week

The mandatory quarantine for passengers arriving in the Region has been reduced to one week, and hotel tests began today, stated the Regional Secretary for Health, Pedro Ramos.

In a statement, the Health Secretary said that every passenger will undergo testing in a specified quarantine hotel and after a week, if the test is negative they will be allowed to leave the confinement of their hotel, but they will be monitored by health authorities.  On the 14th day, they will undergo a second test.

This comes after two cases of Habeas Corpus were presented to the Court of Funchal.  In both cases the petitions request was granted.
