With the spread of COVID-19 (new Coronavirus) we would like to inform you of the procedure to be followed in case you suspect that you might have contracted the virus. The SAC Community will follow the Hungarian National protocol with the help of the CLO. If you are a HAW or NAM PO member showing symptoms, please proceed as follows. If you are a Boeing member, please liaise with one of your translators.
- Go through the attached checklist, this will also be of great help if you need to consult with a doctor.
- If based on the checklist you suspect that you might have contracted the new coronavirus, not only a normal flu, but on top of that “other risk factors” (see the second page of the attached checklist) also see symptoms of COVID-19 here: https://www.who.int/news-room/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses, then call the Medical CLO phone number (+36 30 480 0408)
- CLO will establish contact with a Hungarian doctor through a three-party phone call should this be necessary due to the language barrier.
- If your symptoms are mild, but the doctor decides that you should be tested for COVID-19, they will have a doctor come to your house to carry out the test. You will be put in home quarantine ordered by the authorities until results of your test are back.
- If you produce two negative tests, you will be released from obligatory house quarantine. If your test comes back positive, but your symptoms are mild enough to be managable at home, you will be kept in home quarantine as ordered by the authorities. Medical personnel will then return to your home for follow-up tests. Once you produce two negative tests, you will be released from home quarantine.
- If your test comes back positive and your symptoms are severe, needing hospital care, you will be transported by an ambulance to a hospital equipped to treat infectious diseases.
- You will receive medical care in isolation at the hospital for as long as it is needed. You will be considered cured and be let out of the hospital once you have produced two negative tests for coronavirus.
Please note that we are in the middle of flu season, so as always – wash your hands (20 seconds with soap), sneeze and cough into single-use tissues, avoid hugs, handshakes and crowded places if possible. If you start showing symptoms, stay calm.
