Self-isolation rule breakers could face 500,000 tugrik fine in Mongolia

AKIPRESS.COM - To contain the spread of COVID-19 infections, a 21-day institutional and further 14-day home-based isolation rule has been imposed on all people returning from abroad.

As of June 10, 1601 people under mandatory isolation at 27 isolation facilities in Ulaanbaatar and rural areas, Montsame reports.

Since the isolation rules took effect earlier March, a total of 7,578 people have been in government-arranged isolation facilities and 4,285 people have been monitored under home-based self-isolation, mostly those who arrived home on government-arranged charter flights.

State Emergency Commission, police organizations and local clinics are working to enforce the self-isolation rule on the returnees who were discharged from 21-day hospital-based isolation.

Unannounced home visits have been made to ensure they are complying with the rule and so far more than 13 people have been found either not at home or having given a false address. Therefore, the police department has warned that those who breach the isolation order can face fines of MNT 500,000 or up to one month of imprisonment under the Law on Pandemic.
