    This can include with one other person from outside someone’s household or support/childcare bubble

    Self Isolation period reduced to 10 days

    Self-isolation is essential to reducing the spread of COVID as it breaks the chains of transmission. After reviewing the evidence, we are now confident that we can reduce the number of days that contacts self-isolate from 14 days to 10 days.

    People who return from countries which are not on the travel corridor list should also self-isolate for 10 days instead of 14 days.

    People who test positive should continue to self-isolate for 10 days from onset of symptoms or 10 days from point of taking a positive test if asymptomatic.

    We urge everyone to self-isolate when appropriate, it will save lives.
