The COVID@home program has been developed to provide safe and supportive care for individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 who are well enough to be treated within the home.
Most COVID-19 cases will experience mild to moderate symptoms. The COVID@home program will provide individuals with safe and supportive healthcare in the home.
Depending on an individual’s circumstances, they may also be given a kit containing devices specifically designed for the COVID@home environment, that enable the COVID@home
care team to virtually monitor their symptoms and recovery. Individuals can opt-in and out of the program at any time.
COVID-positive individuals in the COVID@home program will be required to isolate at home for at least seven days. The COVID@home program will provide care 24 hours a day, seven days a week by remote monitoring and online support from qualified health staff within the Department of Health.
