3. If the patient has a mild clinical picture, a sample for laboratory confirmation of COVID-19 is obtained from the physician.

4. If the incident is assessed as possible COVID-19 by the examining physician, the hotel health officer communicates IMMEDIATELY with EODY at 210 5212054 or the special four-digit number 1135 (24 hours a day), to declare a Covid 19 case and get information how to proceed.

5. The patient with a mild clinical picture remains in his room until the results of the laboratory test are announced.

6. During the above waiting period, the entry of staff into the patient's room is avoided, if there is no significant reason. If necessary, one member of the staff of the accommodation deals exclusively with the possible case.

7. The doctor and staff of the hotel entering the suspect's room in the later confirmed case must use high-protection personal protective equipment (MAP) (masks, glasses, waterproof disposable robes). The same applies to staff cleaning the COVID-19 patient room.

8. If confirmed as a case of COVID-19, it is transferred to the special quarantine hotel and later to a health facility that will accommodate patients with COVID-19 if they need treatment.
