Current guidance regarding self-isolation

You and your household must continue to self-isolate if you test positive or develop symptoms, for 10 days from the date of the test or first symptoms.

You must also self-isolate if you are told to do so by NHS Test and Trace or your child's school. This remains law.

As of 19th July, a limited number of critical workers may be informed by their employer, following government advice, to leave self-isolation to attend work.

Self-isolate changes in effect from Monday 16th August

From 16th August, if you have been fully vaccinated you will be exempt from the requirement to self-isolate if you are a contact of a positive case.  From this date, if you are under 18 and a contact of a positive case you will also be exempt from self-isolation.

In both instances, you will be advised to take a PCR test.  If you test positive you will still need to self-isolate regardless of your vaccination status or age.
