COVID-19 Coronavirus Information

LATEST IMPORTANT INFORMATION

If you are viewing this information on your phone, you may find it useful to rotate your device.

How long to self-isolate for:

If you test positive, your self-isolation period includes the day your symptoms started (or the day you had the test, if you do not have symptoms) and the next 10 full days.

If you get symptoms while you’re self-isolating, the 10 days restarts from the day after your symptoms started.

When to stop self-isolating:

You can stop self-isolating after 7 days if you do a rapid lateral flow test on days 6 and 7 of your self-isolation period and:

  • both tests are negative
  • you did both tests at least 24 hours apart
  • you do not have a high temperature

If you do a rapid lateral flow test on day 6 and test positive, wait 24 hours before you do the next test.

If you stop self-isolating on or after day 7, it’s important that you take steps to reduce the chance of passing COVID-19 to others. This means you should:

You can stop self-isolating after the 10 days if either:

  • you do not have any symptoms
  • you just have a cough or changes to your sense of smell or taste – these can last for weeks after the infection has gone

Keep isolating if you have a high temperature after the 10 days, or are feeling unwell, keep self-isolating and seek medical advice. 

When to self-isolate:

Self-isolate straight away and get a PCR test as soon as possible if you have any of these 3 symptoms of COVID-19, even if they are mild:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

You should also self-isolate straight away if:

  • you’ve tested positive for COVID-19 – this means you have the virus
  • someone you live with has symptoms or tested positive (unless you are not required to self-isolate – check below if this applies to you)
  • you’ve been told to self-isolate following contact with someone who tested positive

When you do not need to self-isolate:

If you live with or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, you will not need to self-isolate if any of the following apply:

  • you’re fully vaccinated – this means 14 days have passed since your final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine
  • you’re under 18 years and 6 months old
  • you’re taking part or have taken part in an approved COVID-19 vaccine trial
  • you’re not able to get vaccinated for medical reasons

Even if you do not have symptoms, you need to:
