Georgian citizens arriving home with a negative PCR test result will no longer be required to be placed under mandatory quarantine from October 21, Trend reports via Georgian media.
Georgian Economy Minister Natia Turnava said Georgian citizens with negative COVID-19 test results will be obliged to go into self-isolation for eight days.

If the results of the rapid antigen tests are unclear, foreign citizens will undergo a PCR test also.
