Those who remain in home quarantine shall carry out a medical test within 48 hours of their arrival in the Kingdom and their quarantine period will end with the issuance of a coronavirus negative result.

Children under the age of eight years are exempted from the medical test. However, they need to remain in home quarantine for a period of 48 hours from the time of their arrival in the Kingdom.

The penalties prescribed for violating quarantine regulations will be applied against those violating the new rules, the ministry source said.
