The ideal quarantine for covid 19 must have full PPEs in place, qualified & trained personnel on covid 19 management.

Every person must put on face mask, regular washing hands every time you remember, ensuring social distancing. 

Contacts are are assessed at least 3 times a day for clinical features of covid 19. 

Alteast emergency medicine must be available to treat minor ailments like injuries, diarrhea, skin diseases, malaria and others

A list of number with chronic disease are obtained every day and on arrival like diabetes, hypertension, HIV AIDS, and SCD.

Mothers are also provided haematenics, family planning and sanitary pads basing on needs.


Feeding is as normal in most institutions, breac fast, lunch and supper.

However arrangement must be done to cater for vulnerable groups like pregnancy and lactating mothers including children.


We ensure that every person is given personalised items and marked for each person;

Mosquito net, bracket, matress, basin, soap, plate, cup, and drinking water.


Each contact occupies a single room.


On discharged, the items are disinfected.

Medical discharge form provided with bio-data & covid 19 results.

Positive contacts are evacuated and taken to isolation units for treatment .

All staffs must be tested for covid 19 every after 28 days, including cooks and security personnel.

Contacts are testing after completion of 14 mandatory days in quarantine.


Kisoro District is a centre for 3 countries; Uganda, Rwanda and DRC.

We have the most ideal quarantine centre , and was recommended by MOH.
