IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19:
If you have COVID-19 symptoms you should stay at home and self-isolate immediately. The most important symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of any of the following:
If you have one of these three main symptoms, you should still arrange to have a PCR test as soon as possible. If this PCR test result is positive, you must continue to self-isolate.
IF YOU TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 on your LFT:
If you test positive you must stay at home and self-isolate. You must do this even if you have had the vaccine.
ISOLATION TIME FRAMES WHEN YOU TEST POSITIVE:
From Monday 17 January, people who are self-isolating with COVID-19 will have the option to reduce their isolation period after 5 full days, if they test negative with a lateral flow device (LFD) on both day 5 and day 6 and they do not have a temperature.
e.g, if they test negative on the morning of day 5 and the morning of day 6, they can return to their education or childcare setting immediately on day 6.
CLOSE CONTACTS AND ISOLATION:
If you are fully vaccinated or aged under 18 years and 6 months, and you live in the same household as someone with COVID-19, or, you are a confirmed close contact of somebody infected with the virus, you are not legally required to self-isolate. However, you are strongly advised to take an LFD test every day for 7 days, and to self-isolate if any of these test results are positive.
