Suppose a fully vaccinated individual is exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19 or has close contacts of probable cases. In that case, the person may undergo quarantine for seven days if asymptomatic consistently for the entire quarantine period. However, the local government unit might still conduct tests on the fully vaccinated individuals during this time. Roque adds that this should be done not earlier than the fifth day since the last exposure.
