English term or phrase: self-isolation
Definition from HSE:
Isolation is a health care term that means keeping infected people away from the uninfected. Self-isolation means staying indoors and completely avoiding contact with other people. This is required of all people who have been in contact with known infected people, who have traveled from high risk zones, who have any related symptoms or who have tested positive for the virus.

Example sentence(s):
  • Experts also recommend self-isolation or quarantine for those who have contacted a health professional and show symptoms of the disease — including fever, dry cough, and fatigue — but haven’t yet been tested yet, and for those who have been in close contact with people known to have the virus.

karantīna


Definition from Official page on Covid-19 in Latvia:
Karantīna - pilnīga norobežošanās no veseliem cilvēkiem. Šis ir vissvarīgākais drošības pasākums, lai ierobežotu COVID-19 izplatību. Karantīna (vai tā sauktā “mājas karantīna”) nošķir un ierobežo pārvietošanos tiem cilvēkiem, kuri, iespējams, bijuši pakļauti inficēšanās riskam ar Covid-19, bet jūtas veseli un neizjūt simptomus. 14 dienu karantīna ir obligāta, tās laikā personai jāatrodas mājās, slimnīcā vai īpaši paredzētā vietā.

Example sentence(s):
  • Palikt mājās un pašizolēties vai palikt mājās un dzīvot karantīnā - šie divi jēdzieni, kuri nereti tiek minēta līdzās, radot domas, ka tas nozīmē vienu un to pašu. - Latvijas Sabiedriskie Mediji  
  • Latvijā mājas karantīna noteikta vairākiem simtiem cilvēku, kuri ir atgriezušies no COVID-19 skartiem reģioniem vai arī ir bijuši kontaktā ar slimnieku. - Mammām un Tētiem  
  • Ir jāņem vērā, ka strauji pieaugot saslimstībai ar Covid-19 infekciju, jebkurā valstī, kuru ir skārusi Covid-19 infekcija, var būt jau ieviesti karantīnas pasākumi vai tiek plānots ieviest jaunus karantīnas pasākumus, kas var būtiski ierobežot ceļošanas iespējas un nokļūšanu mājās. - Iekšlietu ministrija  

Explanation:
No angļu valodas termina "self-isolation" definīcijas izriet, ka tā ir pilnīga izolācija, kas latviski būtu tulkojama kā karantīna. Burtiski tulkojot "self-isolation" ir pašizolācija, kas nozīmē norobežošanos no tuviem kontaktiem ar jebkuru cilvēku. Pašizolācija jāievēro cilvēkiem, kas pēdējo 14 dienu laikā atgriezušies no ārvalstīm un neizjūt saslimšanas simptomus.
