Frequently Asked Questions

HBC means you are receiving health care while you are at home and not in a health facility. It is not specific to Covid-19, but constitutes any attention offered at home when you are unwell. It can involve self-care or being taken care of by others. For Covid-19, HBC is recommended when you have mild symptoms, and you do not require oxygen, fluid replacement or organ support because your organs are functioning normally.

Measures need to be taken to ensure that you do not put other people at risk of infection with Covid-19 when undergoing HBC. Key questions to answer are: Who do you live with? Does your house have enough room for you to be able to avoid other people inthe house?
